Our History

The SEA is a powerful campaigning voice, run by a team with a 12 year track record of successful energy policy influence (the team previously ran the Micropower Council and has achieved many positive changes in policy over the past decade).

The Micropower Council was initially formed in 2004 by Lord Ezra and Dave Sowden to create a political narrative and promote the generation of power from local, on-site technology, the name change to the Sustainable Energy Association was agreed upon to provide the platform for future development.

This platform is significant step forward that will for the first time take a fully joined up and properly-researched approach to the integration of Government Policy across departments to promote energy efficiency and self-production of low carbon energy by end users as a single, unified, and well-integrated, “demand-side” narrative. Details on how to join can be found in the membership section.
