ELECTRI Value Proposition Survey - Assistance Requested
In January 2021, the ELECTRI Council voted to fund research to help identify ELECTRI’s path going forward.  ELECTRI’s stated mission is to fund, coordinate, and monitor the EC industry’s most critical research. ELECTRI needs to know how they are doing on fulfilling their mission. In every area of our lives, we are in the midst of rapid change. Trillions of dollars will be spent over the coming decades transitioning energy, transportation, building, and industrial systems to a more sustainable, more resilient and more distributed configuration. Electrical contractors must be prepared to meet this demand -- or others will. This is our time and our turn to get it right. With so much on the line, we should be prepared to answer some tough questions. Your strong level of participation in this survey and your responses will ensure ELECTRI’s researchers can learn from as many of our EC member companies as possible.
