America’s Power is the only national trade organization whose sole mission is to advocate at the federal and state levels on behalf of the U.S. coal fleet and its supply chain. The nation’s fleet of more than approximately 400 coal-fired generating units located across 42 states provides affordable, reliable, dispatchable and energy-secure electricity on a 24/7 basis.
To carry out our mission, we engage constructively with elected and appointed officials, policymakers, and key stakeholders. Our engagement promotes sound public policies that recognize the importance of the coal fleet and its supply chain. We believe a healthy mix of reliable, affordable and energy-secure resources is essential for economic growth and national security. Furthermore, we believe that technology innovation is the best strategy to achieve economically sustainable environmental progress.
Our membership comprises major industries — electricity generators, coal producers, transportation companies, and equipment manufacturers — involved in generating electricity from coal.
