The Awards for Outstanding National Key Accounts were established by the Customer Advisory Group, a group of national corporate customers that provides feedback, guidance, and support to EEI’s National Key Accounts program. “These awards are important to corporate customers,” said Steve Chriss, senior director of Utility Partnerships for Walmart. “It allows us to recognize electric companies and individuals who help us to do our jobs better and work toward our goals. Now more than ever, these relationships and partnerships are critical for our transition to a sustainable and resilient energy future.”

Established in 1988, EEI’s National Key Accounts program is a customer-focused initiative in which electric company account representatives engage and collaborate with their multi-site commercial and industrial customers to develop solutions to support their unique corporate energy goals. The program offers tools and resources for customers to learn about the current energy marketplace, including through workshops, communication outreach, and opportunities to share best practices with peers.
