SACE | Southern Alliance for Clean Energy
Where We Work
Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is the only organization working throughout the Southeast region to create and promote clean energy solutions to global climate change. Our programs and campaigns work to support clean energy, air, water, and safe communities in the region with a primary focus on states where we have offices and staff – Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Because of our broad geographical presence, SACE is addressing the unique need for action on climate policy utilizing a regional approach that allows us to compare trends, share solutions and identify common interests.
From the Everglades to the Appalachian Mountains, the Southeast features many treasured places that are at risk from climate change impacts. The Southeast is also one of the fastest growing regions in the United States and we are rapidly becoming a major contributor to the nation’s emissions of carbon pollution. Each state features distinct resources and challenges, but they all share similar struggles and opportunities.
Southern Alliance for Clean Energy strives to advance clean energy solutions in these states and across the region. Our goal is to raise the standards in the Southeast on how energy is produced and consumed while setting a good example of how to mitigate climate change and reduce the carbon pollution that’s causing it.
