Our vision

Our vision is for Ireland’s energy to be sustainable, secure, affordable, and clean. To achieve this, Ireland must use less energy, move to clean energy, and innovate to create new solutions to meet our energy needs. Leading the transition to smarter and more sustainable energy activities is central to what we do.

SEAI and Brexit

SEAI has been closely monitoring the progress of the Brexit negotiations.  We are satisfied that organisationally we are prepared for Brexit and that, as far as can be assessed during this time of uncertainty, our full range of services and supports to our clients and stakeholders will continue with minimal disruption. SEAI will continue to support the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment and the wider Government with any requirements or analysis needed in preparation for Brexit.
