The North Carolina Energy Efficiency Alliance (NCEEA) was established in 2010 as a state-funded non-profit organization with the goal of supporting energy efficient and third party certified construction in NC. The NCEEA is dedicated to educating all the various stakeholders in the home building industry about the benefits of constructing energy efficient homes and buildings.

Alliance members include home energy raters, home builders and renovators, commercial contractors, architects, engineers, utility providers, real estate brokers, appraisers, and mortgage lenders. The NCEEA strives to address market barriers in the building industry that will ultimately help the consumers and contractors benefit from a healthier, more comfortable home and better built structures.
