The 2016 SEEA & AESP Southeast Conference

Over the past decade, energy efficiency has served the Southeast well. We’ve seen towns improve their energy performance and resilience with smart infrastructure; cities make financial commitments to invest in buildings and public works that save money and create local jobs; and rural electric cooperatives launch innovative energy efficiency financing programs that benefits customers who most need help.

Today, the opportunities to optimize energy use in the  Southeast are greater than ever, and  include efficiency, demand response, the smart grid, renewables, storage, electric vehicles and more! Please join us in 2017 as we explore the current and future states of energy, and the opportunities we have to create a prosperous, cleaner and healthier Southeast.

The 2017 SEEA & AESP Southeast Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, October 16th through Wednesday, October 18th. We look forward to welcoming you!
