The Sustainable Energy & Environmental Network is a non-profit organization based in the Tri-Cities, Washington dedicated to educating and assisting the environmental stewardship and sustainable use of energy resources and technologies. We accomplish this by focusing on four main areas:

  • Environmental education and stewardship: Environmental learning opportunities, community tours, lectures, activities and events. Helping to organize Mid-Columbia Earth Month activities, events, community clean-up projects and green business networking.
  • Sustainable technology in the community: Electrathon electric vehicle car race open competition, traveling exhibits that demonstrate basic alternative energy concepts, grant research and submission, speakers and tours of local energy facilities.
  • Sustainable technology in the classroom: Sustainable technology in the classroom: SEEnet reaches into the classroom in a variety of ways. Most prominent is the Delta High School Electric Vehicle Engineering Club that attracts high school students from throughout the Tri-Cities. The club meets throughout the school year for both classroom discussion and hands-on experience. The club is led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Scientist and SEEnet volunteer Peter Rieke. The club discusses, designs, builds and operates/races an electric derby car to Electrathon America races in the Northwest. Parental support and involvement is encouraged, but not required.
  • Environmental information for the community: Go Green Tri-Cities is a group of like-minded people that strive to keep stainable issues in the forefront of citizen's minds. The website features a 12-month calendar of eco-events, activities and volunteer opportunities. There is a business directory that highlights green businesses, a resource page that include recycling information, list of second-hand stores, eco-organizations and "how to's." all at your fingertips. Go Green Tri-Cities also has a Facebook page for keeping up-to-date with new technologies and information.

We hope you join us in furthering sustainable technology and environmental education in the Mid-Columbia!
