The Sustainable Energy Association of Australia, established on 11 July 2002 to promote the development of a sustainable energy industry as a solution to reducing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions, turned ten years old today.
SEA has a very diverse membership from architects and builders, urban and transport planners, engineers and energy efficiency consultants, lawyers and greenhouse auditors, all the way through to renewable energy manufacturers and generators.'
‘As well as the supply end of business, SEA has a whole raft of customers - customers in business who are buying those goods or services and that are interested in seeing a strong market develop to ensure the availability competitive pricing and a diversity of providers,' says SEA chief adviser, Professor Ray Wills
‘The diversity of SEA membership is reflected in our corporate members - sponsoring members make the largest financial contribution to the advocacy work of the Association, ensuring SEA is well resourced.'
‘On our birthday, SEA acknowledges support of our Platinum Members Hyundai Motor Company Australia and Jackson McDonald Lawyers, and our other sponsoring Corporate Members: Austech Solar, BGC, BHP Billiton, Bright Generation, Collgar Wind Farm, Curtin University of Technology, Fronius Australia, Horizon Power, Hyperion Energy, Infinite Energy, Landfill Gas & Power, Perth Energy, Rio Tinto, ScreenTech, SMA Technology Australia, Smith&Duda Consulting, Sunwise Electrics, Swan Energy, SunPower Corporation, The University of Western Australia, UNLTD Energy, Wesfarmers Limited, Western Power, and WorleyParsons.'
'SEA also acknowledges the important support provided by each and every SEA Member, many of whom also contribute their time to assist in policy development and advocacy work.'
‘SEA's continuing support from a broad spectrum of industry and across whole supply chains is a reflection of the strong level of support from the business community for action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the development of sustainable energy.'
‘Leveraging new and existing technologies can make use of Australia's endless supply of renewable energy - energy that will grow Australia's energy security without adding to carbon emissions in Australia, and grow a more sustainable economy for Australia,' says Prof Wills.
