The Southern States Energy Board originated as the Southern Interstate Nuclear Board, created in 1962 by the Southern Interstate Nuclear Compact. The Compact has been approved by sixteen southern states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Congress (P.L. 87-563). Maryland ratified the Compact in 1963 (Chapter 680, Acts of 1963). The Board adopted its present name in 1977.

By helping its member states develop and implement innovative energy and environmental policies, the Southern States Energy Board seeks to enhance economic development and the quality of life in the South. The Board conducts scientific and technological research and works to eliminate barriers to the use of efficient energy and environmental technologies. To its members, the Board recommends programs on energy and environmental and economic development that encourage sustainable development.

Member states include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Member jurisdictions include Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Each supports the Board through an annual appropriation based on a formula outlined in the Compact.

Each member state is represented on the Board by three members. For Maryland, the Director of the Maryland Energy Administration appoints one member with the Governor's approval; the Senate President appoints a senator; and the House Speaker chooses a delegate (Code 1957, Art. 41, secs. 16-101 through 16-114).
