About Energy Central

Getting the most from the Energy Central Power Industry Network®

The Energy Central Power Industry Network® is designed for professionals working in the global electric utility industry. It allows industry professionals to share their insights and knowledge with other professionals. It also allows intelligent discussions and interactions that help move the industry forward.


The Power Industry Network is a 'closed' network, meaning that you must be a qualified, registered industry professional to participate. Registering allows you to access more relevant information and content. It also allows you to interact with other members (commenting, discussing and asking & answer questions).



Energy Central has more than a dozen newsletters designed to inform industry professionals. While you don't need to become a member for many of our newsletters, registering gives you access to content and features reserved for industry professionals.

Following a member or a company will keep you informed when that member or company posts new content.



Liking content (posts, news, questions, answers, comments, etc.) helps the best content "float to the top". It also helps our systems present content that is relevant and interesting to you. Finally, as a member-based platform, it lets our contributors know that you appreciate their contributions.



Any registered professional can contribute an article, resource or question to the Power Industry Network. Our staff reviews contributed content before posting to ensure it meets our community standards (helpful, relevant and non-commercial). Posting intelligent content helps boost your presence and visibility in the community.
