Overview: The National Electrical Manufactureres Association (NEMA) was created in the fall of 1926 by the merger of the Electric Power Club and the Associated Manufacturers of Electrical Supplies. NEMA provides a forum for the standardization of electrical equipment. The organization also contributes to the electrical industry through its public policy lobbying and by operating as a central agency for gathering, compiling, and analyzing market statistics and economics data. NEMA attempts to promote the electrical industry by providing a forum for: development of technical standards that are in the best interests of the industry and the users of its products; establishment and advocacy of industry policies on legislative and regulatory matters that might affect the industry and those it serves; and collection, analysis, and dissemination of industry data. NEMA has over 400 member companies involved in the manufacture of products used in the generation, transmission and distribution, control, and end-use of electricity.
