This paper summarizes EPRI’s present and future research in the area of SF6. EPRI is a nonprofit research institute funded by global energy customers of all types. EPRT’s focus was once the US alone, but today EPRI serves over 1000 energy related organizations in over 40 countries. The focus of EPRI’s activities is the management of Research and Development for collaborative use. EPRI’s Headquarters are in Palo Alto, with 30 specialized facilities and technical centers throughout the US.
