The Electricity Council was a governmental body set up in 1957[1] to oversee the electricity supply industry in England and Wales. The Council's responsibilities included:

  • advising the Secretary of State for Energy on matters relating to the electricity supply industry in England and Wales
  • helping the Electricity Boards in England and Wales to improve efficiency
  • advising on the financing of the industry in England and Wales
  • organising certain research
  • maintaining the industry-wide industrial relations machinery

The Council was formally wound up by The Electricity Council (Dissolution) Order 2001, made under the Electricity Act 1989,[2] to be replaced by the Electricity Association.
