The energy industry plays a significant role in many of the most important challenges that affect our future. Leading the Charge brings together top professionals and experts to explore how decarbonizing the economy, while safely delivering reliable and affordable energy, benefits customers, communities, and our climate.

Clean Energy

Achieving 100% delivered clean energy in the U.S. (and globally as soon as technically and financially feasible would help mitigate climate change and build a more competitive economy while increasing high‐quality jobs. We need to make this transition equitable and affordable across society with policies that ensure a fair distribution of both the costs and benefits of the clean energy transition. Decarbonizing affordably, reliably and equitably may mean that we need to electrify more vehicles and buildings until we can overcome the challenges to fully decarbonizing the electric sector.


Cybersecurity is critical to the security and reliability of the nation’s electric grid and for the protection of customers’ data. Today’s cyberattacks are advanced and persistent. A strong cybersecurity strategy includes a multilayered defense in-depth approach using a combination of advanced tools, technologies, processes and a robust culture of security among employees. As threats continue to grow, utilities must continually evaluate and prioritize resources and infrastructure to keep systems and data safe and reliable.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Edison International, Southern California Edison and Edison Energy have an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. DEI is an important consideration in how we operate our business and how we approach climate change and our clean energy future. The transition to a clean energy future must include everyone, and the most affordable path to success is by taking an economywide approach. Charging Ahead will explore how the principles of equity, affordability and reliability can guide our ongoing work to bring all sectors of society the benefits of a clean energy economy.

Digital Transformation

Multiple advancements are converging in the energy industry and driving the use of digital technologies to transform the way utilities serve customers and communities. The future includes developing strategies to promote research and development and technology deployment, such as drones, artificial intelligence and machine learning. These advances will support industrywide goals to make utility infrastructure more resilient, support the transition to clean energy, increase worker safety and mitigate climate change and its contribution to wildfire risk.
