SPEER, the newest regional energy efficiency organization, aims to accelerate the adoption of advanced building systems and energy efficient products and services in Texas and Oklahoma. These two states include nearly 30 million people and many of the fastest growing cities in America. There is a tremendous opportunity to increase energy efficiency in the region through building codes, retrofits for existing buildings, better training, innovative policies, and cooperative marketing to make it easier for the public to understand efficiency opportunities.

SPEER was incorporated in October of 2011 with the following mission and purpose statements:
- SPEER’s mission is to accelerate the adoption of advanced building systems and energy efficient products and services in the South-central US.
- The purpose is: to create a forum to advance the understanding and adoption of energy efficiency as a low-cost energy resource; and to design, implement, coordinate, and support regional projects to promote high energy performance and clean distributed energy in the built environment.
SPEER’s activities and initiatives have already had a significant impact in the region, but more importantly, SPEER’s growth, strong membership, and upcoming initiatives give the organization the potential to have a major and sustained impact going forward. This impact can be maximized by additional involvement from companies, organizations, foundations, and governmental entities that could provide support in myriad ways to help us achieve common goals.
