About the Project
The Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, or SEEA, is the Southeastern Regional Energy Efficiency Organization, or REEO, a not-for-profit organization that serves Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

SEEA’s Building Energy Codes Program helps states by providing resources and assistance. SEEA will be collaborating with the Louisiana State Energy Office at the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources through the creation and distribution of the “Success with 2009 IECC for Louisiana” program.

SEEA will provide the training resources - development of the "Success" manual, training materials and presentation technical review, development and feedback process. Center for Energy Studies researchers will coordinate training via four regional workshops.
