The CEATI program model provides electrical utilities with a cost-effective vehicle for sharing experiences and addressing issues pertinent to their day-to-day operations, maintenance and planning. In addition to serving as a strong technical resource tool through 18 focus areas across generation, transmission, distribution and utilization, CEATI programs accommodate project collaboration opportunities yielding practical deliverables with which organizations can leverage their expenditures.
Hydro Program
The CEATI Hydro program brings together the world’s leading hydroelectric utilities in three distinct areas:

Dam Safety
CEATI's Dam Safety Interest Group (DSIG) is composed of dam owners who jointly sponsor research & development projects designed to help assess and improve the safety of dams. They have found great value in their ability to test and discuss different maintenance, design and emergency response strategies through the forums CEATI provides. Today, the DSIG is represented internationally by participants around the globe.

Hydraulic Plant Life
The Hydraulic Plant Life Interest Group (HPLIG) is a collaborative technology focused program designed to assist hydroelectric utilities in their efforts to lower capital and operation costs, extend equipment life, improve efficiency, increase reliability and reduce outage times for equipment repair and maintenance, improve safety and environmental performance, improve risk based asset management decision making, performance evaluation and benchmarking techniques.

Hydropower Operations & Planning
The Hydropower Operations and Planning Interest Group (HOPIG) is a collaborative program designed to develop new and innovative technological approaches and options to support the role of the water manager in managing and enhancing the underlying fundamental value of the industry, and to provide a knowledge based leading edge technological resource to assist the hydropower industry in meeting the many new challenges.

Stations Program
CEATI's Life Cycle Management of Station Equipment & Apparatus (LCMSEA) Interest Group brings together interested parties to facilitate research that will optimize the life cycle management of station equipment and apparatus and reduce costs through collaborative measures. Projects are focused under the areas of procurement & installation, maintenance practices, condition assessment and strategic management.

Cables Program
The Transmission Underground Cables Interest Group (TUCIG) provides a forum for the exchange of information on cable asset management and to establish and promote techniques and tools for improving the management of fluid-filled and XLPE High Voltage underground cable systems. The group's current focus is developing a Reference Manual for Transmission Cable Systems, which will include the compilation of best work practices and procedures for the design, maintenance and operation based on utility experience.
