NASEO Regions

 is organized into seven regions to facilitate coordination among state energy officials, develop multi-state programs to leverage resources, and foster peer sharing around policies and programs.

NASEO’s in-region coordinators have extensive experience as State Energy Officials themselves.   Their unique state energy policy and program expertise make them an invaluable resource not only for the states in their region, but also for NASEO’s Affiliate Members.  Regional coordinators convene regularly with the state energy officials in their region, connect with other state agencies and regional organizations, and support the development of regional projects that leverage states’ efforts.
