Who is NTAEE?
The Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) is your source for info & networking in the dynamic fields of energy engineering, energy management, renewables, power generation, energy services, sustainability, and related areas. AEE’s overall strength is augmented by its strong membership base of over 17,500 professionals in 98 countries and its widely recognized energy certification programs. Its network of over 96 local chapters located throughout the U.S. and abroad (2015), meet regularly to discuss issues of regional importance. We invite you to join AEE today.
NTAEE has over 150 local members and is one of the largest AEE chapters. The North Texas Chapter was founded in 1985 by a small determined group involved in energy management. Their efforts have evolved into one of the most rapidly growing and innovative chapters within AEE. NTAEE contains a broad cross section of professionals associated with the area's premier companies. Members have the opportunity of networking with other professionals on both local and regional issues. If your occupational responsibilities include energy delivery, equipment, management, maintenance, or consulting, you are an ideal candidate for membership in NTAEE.

NTAEE is active in sponsoring seminars for area professionals. We have sponsored successful cogeneration, CFC, utility deregulation, and dozens of energy management seminars.

Both NTAEE and AEE International award scholarships to deserving students majoring in energy related courses.
Our combined efforts have resulted in 110 scholarships worth over $110,000 being awarded to students in and from the North Texas area. NTAEE, from its inception, has committed itself to community involvement. Besides scholarships, we have adopted several schools and non-profit facilities, providing 'no cost' energy audits. Paul Quinn College was chosen to receive special assistance in replacing its old and sometimes non-existent HVAC systems by NTAEE member companies.
NTAEE has been active in promoting the passage of energy conservation legislation (Texas Senate Bill 115) and has an active committee reviewing the National Energy Policy. Like any association, it is the people that make NTAEE work. As a member, you have access to other professionals facing the same problems you cope with regularly.
Your membership also provides you opportunities to obtain authoritative technical and managerial information which affords you a decided competitive advantage.
