SEAC Advances Consensus-Based Solutions to Clean Energy Permitting & Inspection Issues
What Is SEAC?
The Sustainable Energy Action Committee (SEAC) provides a forum to collaboratively identify and find solutions to issues that affect the installation and use of sustainable energy systems (solar PV, energy storage, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, etc.). SEAC’s mission is to facilitate the deployment and use of affordable, clean and renewable energy in a safe, efficient, and sustainable manner.
Participation in SEAC is open to all stakeholders. Our members include authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) from local building and fire departments, firefighters and emergency responders, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, utilities, testing labs, and other clean energy stakeholders.
SEAC is led by a steering committee comprised of some of the leading organizations working on renewable energy and related codes and standards.
The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) serves as the administrator of SEAC, facilitating its work under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Other key partners include the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), International Code Council (ICC), UL LLC, International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM), Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Energy Storage Association (ESA), and California Solar & Storage Association (CALSSA).
