The Energy Efficiency Association is made up of energy efficiency experts working toward a common goal - reducing wasted energy in homes and businesses across America.

The Energy Efficiency Association operates as the certifying body for several energy efficiency training companies. Each of our certified training providers works directly with the association to create and develop their curriculum. We offer our expertise to each program and ensure that each meets our standards on efficiency and educates using the proven system that we have successfully used in the industry.
