Our Mission

We make energy efficiency affordable

The Association for Energy Affordability, Inc. is dedicated to achieving energy efficiency in new and existing buildings in order to foster and maintain affordable and healthy housing and communities, especially those of low-income.  AEA representatives engage in a broad range of educational, technical and construction management activities and services to promote this mission and develop the industry that advances and sustains it.

New York

Beginning in the early 1990s, AEA has provided training, program design, and implementation services for Weatherization, utility and NYSERDA-funded energy-efficiency programs – including serving as both a technical services provider and direct services subgrantee for the Weatherization Assistance Program in New York State. AEA specializes in delivering energy efficiency to multifamily properties, including affordable housing.

California

AEA opened its West Coast office in 2010 and has since helped lead the charge towards a clean, efficient, and equitable zero net carbon multifamily building stock in California. We are deeply committed to addressing the challenges of climate change by delivering the benefits of energy efficiency and solar to the communities that are most susceptible to climate impacts and have the fewest resources available to them to protect themselves from the consequences.
