SEEA is tracking federal investments from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in the Southeast and U.S. Territories. The current dashboards focus on funding available through the BIL. Additional sources of funding, including the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will be included in future versions as more funding is allocated.
Southeast Energy Efficiency Fund
In 2018, SEEA issued a request for proposals (RFP) seeking new opportunities to advance innovative energy efficiency strategies through a Southeast Energy Efficiency Fund, a pool of legacy funds from SEEA’s allocation under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program. Out of 20 proposals, five were selected for funding based on their potential to deliver significant energy efficiency gains.
Southeast Energy Insecurity Project
In December 2022, SEEA announced the winners of the inaugural Southeast Energy Insecurity Project Implementation Awards. The awards were designed and selected by the Southeast Energy Insecurity Project (SEIP) Leadership Forum, which is part of SEEA’s Southeast Energy Insecurity Project, launched in July 2022.
