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, 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.

The Southern States Energy Board seeks to improve the economy of the South and the welfare of its people by cooperative efforts to ensure proper use and conservation of energy, and energy-related facilities, materials, and products with due regard for the environment.

Member jurisdictions include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, 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).
