Our History

The Sustainable Energy Association (SEA) is a powerful campaigning voice, run by a team with a strong track record of successfully influencing energy policy.

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.

The formation of the SEA was a significant step towards taking 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. We continue to advocate for a joined up, whole house approach to energy policy. Details on how to join and help to shape the policy landscape can be found in the membership section
