Mr Edwin Khew The Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) is a non-government and non-profit business association that represents the interests and provides a common platform for companies in Sustainable Energy sector to meet, discuss, collaborate and undertake viable projects together.

SEAS was launched on 12 July 2006. SEAS represents more than 200 companies across all sectors of sustainable energy including energy efficiency, renewable energy, carbon management, sustainable infrastructure, sustainable laboratories as well as banks & funds interested in the sector. Our steady growth in membership numbers and programmes has mirrored the growth of the sustainable energy sector in Singapore and the ASEAN region.

As part of the member engagement activities, the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), has formed committee groups focused on different areas within the sustainable energy industry to provide an opportunity to our members to have in-depth discussions on specific areas to address policy issues, state of the market as well as new opportunities to collaborate with each other. The committee groups include: Clean Energy Committee, Energy Efficiency Committee, Sustainable Laboratories Committee, Sustainable Infrastructure Committee, Finance Committee, Marine Renewable Energy Committee & Sustainable Energy Start-Up Network. In 2018, SEAS started the Sustainable Energy Start-Up Network (SESUN) which aims to add value for start-ups in the SEAS network in the areas of research & development, technology innovation and test bedding.
