Southeast Asia Renewable and Adaptive Energy
Provides sustainable energy services to rural areas, through photovoltaic arrays and hydroenergy harvesters.
SEA-RAE develops, installs and maintains small-scale renewable energy solutions tailored to the social, environmental and economic needs of developing communities. Its innovation lies in combining green technological solutions with affordable ﬁnancing plans that encourage community ownership. Initially designed for energy-poor communities in the Mekong Delta, the enterprise’s energy technologies are also suitable for application in other areas of Vietnam and across the whole of Southeast Asia.
Southeast Asia Renewable and Adaptive Energy (SEASEA-RAE) serves as a research hub for the international SEA-RAE enterprise and responsible for coordinating the international network, partners and for developing the venture's energy and ﬁnancial models.
Energy Conservation Research and Development Center is the primary conduit between Vietnamese communities in need of energy provision services and SEA-RAE’s US-based research hub.
Minh Tran Co. Ltd provides solar panels and other components for SEA-RAE’s infrastructure-building activities in Vietnam.
The 2013 SEED Low Carbon Awards are supported by the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
