What our members say

We have decided to join the SEA because we believe their in-depth sector insight and their industry-network could be invaluable for a small SME like ourselves. This is a very critical time for energy efficiency – with numerous councils announcing climate emergency, and newly launched national schemes such as the Green Homes Grant or ECO4 – it is a perfect time to be part of such a proactive group and be on top of what’s going on in the sector!

At a time when industry-wide action to focus on reaching the UK’s ambitious net zero target is vital, BRE is delighted to be joining the SEA. The SEA’s whole house and whole heating system approach is in line with our own, developed over nearly a century of research on the built environment, and 30 years of delivering the world-leading BREEAM scheme. We look forward to working alongside other members in the run up to COP26 and further into the future.

CPL values the exposure given to the organisation by being a members of the SEA. We also benefit from the opportunity to raise awareness of policy issues of importance to us and to discuss common issues with other industry stakeholders. Having the backing of a leading industry association with a strong reputation for shaping policy which is comprised of such a wide range of organisations builds on CPL’s industry authority which ultimately has a positive impact on our commercial position.

We value greatly the input from a diverse range of low carbon industry stakeholders and the evidence base approach that the SEA takes. The work of the SEA is very much aligned to EDF’s own vision of helping Britain achieve net zero.

Gemserv shares SEA’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions. Our membership will enable us to work with our peers to promote energy efficiency and low carbon solutions as a single, unified, and well integrated, “demand side” approach.

Our decision to join the SEA was not a difficult one. The potential benefits for our business are immense. The connections the SEA has and its proactive approach to addressing issues are a breath of fresh air.

Knauf Insulation is pleased to be part of the SEA. Only through a holistic approach to energy efficiency and micro-generation will we make serious progress in reducing carbon emissions from our building stock. Our participation in the SEA is a building block in the realisation of this objective.

The SEA’s vision and cross-Industry membership, together with its technologically agnostic grounding, helps to develop balanced policy proposals, based upon a strong economic rationale, with supporting evidence and analysis to add weight to recommendations. Ultimately, the SEA helps to support better policy-making, better standards, better, more efficient buildings and improved outcomes for the people that occupy those buildings, as well as market growth for the Industry.

Membership of the SEA compliments Mitsubishi Electric’s own Green Gateway approach which seeks to influence the ways in which everyone can play their part in achieving an increase in efficiency and a reduction in energy use and CO2 emissions.

As a small business with a big ambition to help the UK achieve net zero, Naked Energy decided to join the SEA to be part of a group that are alert to the evolving political landscape and a driving force to maximise the impact of its members.

Energy efficiency has long been recognised as the most cost effective way to meet all of the goals of energy policy. We have seen the SEA develop in recent years to become a very effective and constructive voice for a fabric-first approach to energy policy. Recticel are therefore pleased to be an Executive Member of this influential organisation as it helps to shape the UK market for the future.

As a manufacturer of innovative products, we are at the forefront of what is possible and always looking at new ways to engage in the markets we serve and to share the benefits of our Fuel Cell technology. SEA have an invaluable network of connections with in industrial and construction sectors as well as BEIS. It is these connections that make the individual SEA members stronger, better informed and therefore better equipped to participate and take action for the good of the environment, our energy infrastructure and the economy.

We’re committed to providing homes which offer affordable warmth to our residents. We also feel it is a key part of our social purpose to help tackle climate change. Being a member of the SEA gives us an opportunity to do both.

It is a crucial time for social landlords, local authorities, manufacturers, suppliers and policy makers to come together to shape the energy efficiency of current and future homes across the country, and the SEA is helping to make that happen.

Thermocill decided to become a member of the SEA after seeing the sustainable work that the SEA portray. Awareness of energy savings, sustainability and the environment is paramount so that we may all do our bit to help achieve net zero. Innovative ideas like Thermocill will hopefully inspire other UK engineers & inventors to come together and play their part in achieving this goal. Government schemes such as the Green Homes Grant & ECO4 will certainly help towards Thermocill being part of it!

Viessmann uses SEA membership to ensure its positive vision for energy efficiency and renewable substitution reaches policy formers and decision makers in Government. The SEA promotes policies that allow industry and government to work cohesively and sensibly, building on market capabilities, to deliver policies and products best suited to consumer needs.

This is a time of immense change as the entire world transitions to a sustainable model. There are tremendous business opportunities opening up and Clade are leading the way in commercial heat pumps.

We are really excited to be joining the SEA who are a vital link between business, the broader sector and the policy makers.
