Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations
Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA)
IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, ND, NE, MI, MN, MO, OH, SD, WI
The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) is a collaborative network advancing energy efficiency in the Midwest to support sustainable economic development and environmental preservation. MEEA raises awareness, facilitates energy efficiency programs and strengthens policy across the nine-state region. MEEA brings together a respected network of members, partners, board and staff, and inspires others to create new technologies, new products and new ways of thinking when it comes to energy efficiency.
Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP)
CT, DC, DE, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT
Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) is a regional non-profit organization founded in 1996. NEEP's mission is to promote the efficient use of energy in homes, buildings and industry in the Northeast U.S. through regionally coordinated programs and policies that increase the use of energy-efficient products, services and practices, and that help achieve a cleaner environment and a more reliable and affordable energy system.
Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA)
ID, MT, OR, WA
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is a non-profit organization working to encourage the development and adoption of energy-efficient products and services. NEEA is supported by the region's electric utilities, public benefits administrators, state governments, public interest groups and efficiency industry representatives. This unique partnership has helped make the Northwest region a national leader in energy efficiency.
Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance (SEEA)
AL, AR, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN, VA
The Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance promotes energy efficiency for a cleaner environment, a more prosperous economy, and a higher quality of life in the Southeastern region of the United States.
Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP)
AZ, CO, NV, NM, UT, WY
The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) is a public interest organization promoting greater energy efficiency in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. This is a high-growth region where energy efficiency efforts historically have been lagging compared to other regions, air pollution is a growing concern, and many new power plants are planned, including new coal-fired power plants.
SWEEP focuses on electricity and natural gas conservation along with the promotion of combined heat and power systems while working in the following areas:
- state energy legislation
- utility energy efficiency programs
- building energy efficiency
- education and training
- information development and exchange
SWEEP's building energy code activities focus on supporting the adoption and enforcement of residential and commercial building energy codes at the state and local levels. SWEEP provides technical assistance to state and local officials seeking to develop or update their energy code, with emphasis on developing and adopting more efficient energy codes on either a mandatory or voluntary basis. We also prepare state and regional estimates of the energy savings potential and cost-effectiveness of adopting more energy efficient building energy codes.
South-Central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER)
SPEER is a partnership of energy efficiency industry stakeholders committed to the accelerated adoption of advanced building systems and energy efficiency products and services in the South-central U.S.
