In addition to providing healthy places for all of us to live and work, our built environment plays a key role in supporting economic growth and job creation across our region. Optimizing the use of energy within the built environment through energy efficiency measures improves the performance of our homes and workplaces, reduces energy bills and provides comfortable, healthy indoor environments.

SEEA provides technical assistance, education and resources to help business and government decision makers, and homeowners, to make smart, informed energy-related decisions. Together with a variety of stakeholders from across the Southeast, including, but not limited to, developers, construction trades people, building inspectors, government policy makers, regulatory bodies and others, SEEA’s Built Environment team strives to provide evidence-based research and user-friendly resources to best serve the information needs of those making decisions about our built environment.
