About Organizers

Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS)
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. Our steady growth in membership numbers and programmes has mirrored the growth of the sustainable energy sector in Singapore and the ASEAN region. The Association benefited from a Local Enterprise and Association Development (LEAD) grant from IE Singapore and SPRING Singapore, underlining their belief in the future of our industry and in Singapore’s role as a global Clean Energy hub.

Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN)
As technology prices continue to fall, clean energy projects become more profitable and the appetite of investors for such projects grows. Now is a time of enormous potential for the development of clean energy capacity around the world. There are many entrepreneurs out there with great ideas for clean energy and climate adaptation projects that are economically viable. However, especially in low- and middle-income countries, the projects and the investment tend to have difficulty finding each other:

  • Entrepreneurs simply may lack the connections to find investment, or may be unsure of what investors look for in a business plan
  • Investors may find it difficult to assess investment opportunities in markets they are not familiar with PFAN bridges this gap by helping entrepreneurs build their businesses and present them in a language which investors will understand and be interested in. We then help investors find and recognise the potential of these businesses.
