Australia’s new Carbon Reduction Scheme
and Renewable Energy Target could mean
massive expansion in investment.
Sustainable Energy Australasia Limited (SEA) is
an Australian Public company focused on the
development and acquisition of a portfolio of low
carbon emitting energy assets.
responsible investing
SEA is primarily focused on investing in the energy
industry in a manner which should provide substantial
returns for investors through capital value and revenue
growth. SEA aims to invest responsibly in this industry,
an industry, which is primarily responsible for the majority
of emissions of greenhouse gases worldwide, and the
primary driver of global warming.
Holistic approach
While technologies such as wind and hydro-electric are
set to take over in the near future as our most important
energy sources, SEA is currently making use of gas
and oil reserves in Oklahoma and Texas in order to
help fund the development of these technologies. SEA
Director, Richard Pritchard, has developed previous
renewable energy assets and technology, and has strong
connections to Indian authorities through the Australia-
India Business Council, where he chairs the Sustainable
Energy Sub Committee.
Mr Pritchard believes that this kind of ‘holistic’
approach to furthering sustainable energy is going to be
beneficial both to the advancement of these technologies such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The
