Overview and Key Contacts

With the emergence of distributed energy resources, the two-way flow of data and other new technologies, utilities are becoming more efficient and reliable. And as the grid evolves, so do the roles of electric cooperatives in ensuring they are protecting their assets, the flow of power to their communities and employee and member data. NRECA works with government agencies, legislatures and industry groups to ensure policies, laws and regulations reflect the needs of the electric cooperatives throughout these efforts.

NRECA also offers resources and training opportunities specifically designed to provide cooperatives with tools they can use to improve their cybersecurity posture. Through our federally-funded cybersecurity research and partnerships with public and private stakeholders, NRECA creates products and services that meet the unique needs of our members and help them prepare for existing and potential threats to the reliability and security of their cooperative.
