What We Do

The Virginia Energy Efficiency Council is the voice for the energy efficiency industry in the Commonwealth.

Founded in 2012, VAEEC is a 501c3 organization, headquartered in Richmond, whose goal is to facilitate discussions and share resources to advance energy efficiency throughout the Commonwealth. We engage our members to identify barriers to and opportunities for energy efficiency advancement, and to develop a strong, fact-based, and balanced industry voice before local, state, and national policymakers and regulators. Our diverse group of over 100 members includes Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, local governments, state agencies, and more whose vision is for energy efficiency to be an integral part of Virginia’s economy and clean energy future.

Through our programs, member network, and events, we:

  • Engage stakeholders to identify barriers and opportunities to energy efficiency as a resource in Virginia,
  • Develop a strong, fact-based and balanced industry voice before local, state and national policymakers and regulators,
  • Inform our members of events, legislation, and regulation at the local, state and national level that affects their businesses, and
  • Provide networking, outreach, and business services for our state’s energy efficiency industry and the public at large.
