The Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan is the peak electricity supply industry body in Japan.

On its website it states that "electricity supply in Japan is carried out by privately-owned independent regional electric power companies and close cooperation among these companies is essential for efficient operations. In 1952, the nine electric power companies established the Federation of Electric Power Companies (FEPC) to promote smooth operations within the industry ... FEPC has played an important role as a base for close communication between the electric power companies and as a forum for exchanging views to create the electric power industry of the future.
