The Sustainable Energy Association is a member based industry body offering innovative policy solutions that link up building-level technologies and the wider energy system to achieve a low carbon, secure energy future for the UK, benefits for UK consumers, and commercial growth for businesses working in the sector. We are technology agnostic, taking a whole house and whole heating system approach which does not favour one technology over another, but rather focuses on the right solution. We promote holistic ‘fabric first’ approaches to developing heat policy.
Our membership includes retailers and manufacturers of energy saving measures, insulation and heating systems, energy suppliers, regulators, and housing providers.
Since its foundation in 2013, the Sustainable Energy Association (SEA) has made significant contributions toward the development of policy affecting building-level energy measures. Capitalising on the technical-know how inherent to its member companies and the vigorous campaigning efforts of its staff, backed up with robust economic analysis, the association has been vocal and effective in arguing for improvements in policy, from the Feed-in-Tariff to the Renewable-Heat-Incentive for example.
The SEA provides its members with up-to-date information, analysis and insight into policy developments. Equally, its insightful political analysis and collaborative and constructive approach to policy development backed by robust evidence and analysis ensures that decision makers respect the SEA and engage with in the policy development process. The SEA works to ensure that decision makers are fully informed of the abilities of the renewable and energy efficiency industries to contribute towards the United Kingdom’s economic, social and environmental prosperity.
