The Iowa Utility Association (IUA) is helping Iowa thrive with a robust, sustainable energy grid that reliably delivers the power we count on every day. Formed in 1971, the IUA’s mission is to secure Iowa’s energy future by improving the common business interests and operating conditions of Iowa’s investor-owned electric, natural gas and transmission utilities. The Iowa Utility Association’s members are Alliant Energy, Black Hills Energy, ITC Midwest, MidAmerican Energy Company and NextEra Energy Resources. These utilities provide energy for millions of Iowans to go about their lives in the forms of natural gas and electricity.
From the IUA’s offices near the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines, the IUA works with our member companies to develop, coordinate and promote common industry public policy. The IUA’s goal is to promote a business environment that ensures safe, reliable, secure, affordable and sustainable energy for Iowans. The IUA also organizes various forums to help the public understand industry issues and economic development initiatives, including the annual SMART Conference.
The IUA’s key areas of advocacy include energy infrastructure, energy security, growth in renewable energy in Iowa and cyber security.
