As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association (NCSEA) works to enable clean energy jobs, economic opportunities, and affordable energy options for North Carolinians.

What Matters to Us

Each and every day, we work toward a vision of a North Carolina where the benefits of clean energy, including economic development opportunities, more affordable consumer bills, job growth, market exports, local tax based expansion, and an improved quality of life, are bountiful for all North Carolinians.

What We Do

NCSEA works with its members and partners to transform our state and region's energy system through market innovation and policy advocacy primarily in ten clean energy technology sectors: alternative fuel vehicles (primarily electric vehicles), biogas, energy efficiency, energy storage, geothermal, hydropower/marine, smart grid, solar, and wind.

How We Do It

NCSEA approaches its work in an evidence-based and collaborative manner. We are informed by our diverse community of energy industry leaders, utilities, customers, and innovators. For over forty years, our mission-driven business model has furthered the transformation of North Carolina energy policy, markets, and systems that create an affordable, resilient, and secure clean energy future.

“Without NCSEA being active in the Southeast for the last forty-one years, many of our clients wouldn’t have invested in North Carolina, they wouldn’t have created jobs in North Carolina.”
