When you donate to NESEA …
you help do the future right
NESEA is the region’s leading membership organization promoting sustainable energy practices in the built environment. Our work is vital. A Chilean poet said that “we are un-doing the future.” NESEA is un-doing that. NESEA helps do the future, and do it right. In the United States, the building sector accounts for nearly half of all energy consumption. It also produces nearly half of all greenhouse gas emissions, making it the largest single contributor to climate change. To shape the built environment is to shape the future not only of our cities and towns, but also of our planet.
you support the people in the trenches
We NESEA members are the architects, builders, installers, and others who are actively figuring out how to create a sustainable built environment—and actually building it. With NESEA, we have the infrastructure for collaboration that we need to connect with each other, learn from our successes and failures, and get the job done.

you fight greenwashing
A lot of people, services, and products are labeling themselves “green” these days. Greenwashing is anathema to us. NESEA is committed to practical solutions and proven results—as evidenced by our Zero Net Energy Building Award and programs like our BuildingEnergy conference and trade show.
you help raise awareness
How many people even know you can design a house that doesn’t need a heating system? In the Northeast! Or that our buildings can make as much or more energy than they consume? Through our Zero Net Energy Building Award and programs like our Green Buildings Open House, NESEA shows people what’s possible—and spurs the adoption of sustainable energy practices.
