SEEA and its members, board, stakeholders and funders collaborate to assess the Southeast on an ongoing basis to determine the initiatives that offer the greatest potential for creating prosperous local economies, a healthy and sustainable environment and a higher quality of life for all of our citizens.
Together and in combination, SEEA’s work in each of these areas is designed to create favorable short-term outcomes such as smarter energy policies, stronger local energy codes, resources to upgrade the existing building stock, and opportunities to provide equal access to affordable energy for all communities.
As these outcomes occur, the region is better able to optimize its use of energy, enhance its productivity, and achieve stronger local economies, new job creation, and improved indoor comfort and health for all.
Energy Efficiency Policy
SEEA’s policy work focuses on state, local and utility policy for the purpose of advancing energy efficiency progress and opportunities across the region.
SEEA’s work with residential, commercial and industrial buildings addresses building energy codes and their impact on building resilience, health, comfort and affordability.
Energy Efficient Transportation
SEEA’s efforts to advance energy efficient transportation address policy, programs, outreach, charging infrastructure, and technical assistance.
SEEA’s pool of legacy ARRA funds are currently invested in five community projects that were selected for their potential to deliver significant energy efficiency gains.
