Who is SEYN for?

The short answer is: for everyone. SEYN aims to be as inclusive as possible and the energy transition will only work if it is widely participative. So, we want as many people as possible to join us in raising awareness about renewable energy opportunities, by designing and developing projects as alternative pathways to the energy transition.

SEYN is a non-profit association, registered in Portugal and working globally with a current focus on Southern Europe and Asia.
