The International Electricity Infrastructure Assurance Forum is an international public-private partnership promoting government and electricity industry collaboration to benefit its participants.
The IEIA Forum, open to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, will allow participating countries to realize these benefits and enhance electricity integrity, reliability and security.
The IEIA Forum's Charter defines its purpose as fostering "close international collaboration and assistance on issues related to electricity infrastructure assurance." There are significant benefits from establishing partnerships between government and electricity sector stakeholders, particularly where countries face common infrastructure assurance challenges.
Forum activities are directed by a Steering Committee representing government and industry from each participating country.
Founding participants defined the following objectives for the IEIA Forum, as directed by an international Steering Committee representative of participants:
- Enhance protection of the electric infrastructure of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
- Stimulate active involvement of electric sector and government stakeholders and participants
- Provide a framework for collaboration among represented countries on a government-to-government, industry-to-industry and government-to-industry basis
Identify and address infrastructure assurance priorities
Align government and industry participant efforts to identify common initiatives and deliverables
- Share experience, information, solutions and other mutually identified resources

2016 IEIA FORUM INTERIM MEETING
In 2016 there will be an interim meeting in New York City, USA the week of 19 September with the IEIA Forum Annual Meeting resuming in 2017.
The interim meeting date will allow for two opportunities. The first would coincide with a United Nation General Assembly meeting of Energy Ministers and staff from 140+ countries. They would be invited to a daylong session to share energy-related issues and concerns within their countries and IEIA Forum attendees would be participants during these sessions. The second opportunity would be an IEIA Forum meeting with an agenda to solicit future directions and priorities as well as current near and long term challenges to our critical infrastructure. This session would be a minimum half-day with possible expansion to full day. Both sessions would be no longer than two days at a single venue.
Location and date details on the interim meeting will be available shortly.
