The Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance (SEEA) is one of six regional energy efficiency organizations in the U.S. working to transform the energy efficiency marketplace. Energy efficiency is a catalyst for economic growth, workforce development and energy security, and SEEA promotes its benefits and opportunities across 11 southeastern states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,  Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

In this discussion, Southeast Green will interview SEEA and their partner, the Cadmus Group, about the findings of their recent economic analysis, which showed a 378 percent return on the $20.2M investment made by the U.S. Department of Energy in energy efficiency programming in the Southeast, from 2010 to 2013. We'll look at how the region performed overall, as well as how the eight participating states fared individually. We'll talk about economic output, labor income, and the number of new jobs created per million dollars invested. And, we'll explore the factors that led to the best performances.
