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, transmission and water utilities. The Iowa Utility Association’s members are Alliant Energy, Black Hills Energy, ITC Midwest and MidAmerican Energy Company. Associate members include NextEra Energy Resources and Iowa American Water. These utilities provide energy and water for thousands of Iowa’s homes and businesses.
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 and water for Iowans. The IUA also organizes various forums to help the public understand industry issues and economic development initiatives, including the annual DEV Conference.
The IUA’s key areas of advocacy include infrastructure, security, growth in renewable energy in Iowa, safety and cyber security.
