Launched as a project of the US Climate Action Network in 2008 in anticipation of the Federal climate and energy Waxman-Markey bill, the Southeast Climate and Energy Network (SCEN) stands as the largest regional collaborative of clean energy and climate change advocates and organizations from twelve Southeastern states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and West Virginia. We strive to be the premier environmental network in the Southeast by advocating for, educating, responding to and empowering our members, frontline and low-income communities and communities of color
The network has evolved to become an open and safe space to share ideas and best practices. Over the past several years, SCEN has hosted numerous regional summits in the Southeast, including in Charlotte, Atlanta, Charleston, New Orleans, Raleigh, St. Petersburg, and Richmond. Our next Network Convening will be hosting in Birmingham, Ala., on May 30-31, 2019.
