As a regional organization, MEEA strongly believes in and actively participates in activities that cross state boundaries and bring together regional stakeholders in collaborative efforts to advance energy efficiency throughout the region. By working together we not only can foster greater understanding of the issues, but also craft priorities and policies that are comparable and compatible across state lines, avoiding the 'patchwork' of conflicting messages and practices that can occur in the absense of these cross-cutting efforts.
MEEA's current regional collaboration efforts are:
- REAMP, a multi-state network of non-profits and foundations that engages on climate change and energy efficiency policy across the upper Midwest
- The Midwestern Governors Association (MGA), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that brings together the governors of Midwestern states to work cooperatively on public policy issues of significance to the region.
