Major companies include American Electric Power, AES, Dominion Resources, Duke Energy, Exelon, and Tennessee Valley Authority (all based in the US); China HuaNeng Group and China Power; E. ON (Germany); Tokyo Electric Power Company; and Inter RAO (Russia).

The global electricity industry generates about 22 trillion kilowatt hours (KWh) of electricity. The leading countries in electricity generation are China, the US, Russia, and India. About 20 percent of the world's population does not have access to electricity, resulting in an unmet demand that will fuel industry growth in areas like India and Africa.

The US electric power generation industry consists of about 480 companies with combined annual revenue of about $118 billion. Key growth drivers include renewable power generation and further development of electric vehicles.
