Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) was set up by the Irish government in 2002 as Ireland’s National Energy Agency with a mission to promote and assist the development of sustainable energy.
SEAI’s activities can be divided into two main areas:
- Energy Use – Energy is vital to how we live our daily lives but most of us don’t use energy as efficiently as we could. By assisting those who use energy (mainly industry, businesses and householders), to be more energy efficient, SEAI can help to reduce the amount of energy we use overall.
- Renewable Energy – Energy that is generated from renewable sources such as wind and solar power is clean and doesn’t produce harmful greenhouse gases. By promoting the development and wider use of renewable energy in Ireland SEAI can help to further benefit the environment, in particular reducing the threat of climate change.
SEAI is also involved in other activities such as stimulating research and development, advising on energy policy and producing energy statistics.
