News: SEA merges with Samso Energy Academy
The Samso Energy Agency is too small to carry its financial overhead. The work continues as usual.
The Samso Energy Agency (SEA), founded in 2005, was instrumental to the creation of the Samso Energy Academy. SEA started in 2005 in the project named ARTECLAND together with the Tenerife Energy Agency and Energy Agency Iceland. The project was partially funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. Since then, SEA has participated as a partner in several EU projects (Inres, Energy Ambassadors, Promise).
As a result of the EU work, SEA has been able to build a body of knowledge, which has long term durability. SEA has created online courses and a textbook, documented on this website (Courses, Textbook). To preserve this documentation, and to keep it accessible, the website will continue to live.
With only one or two employees, indirect costs owing to accounting, IT, licenses, fees, etc., have become a burden. Furthermore, SEA cannot get the tax (VAT) refunded anymore, and that amounts to 25% in Denmark. The management boards of the two organisations have made a business decision to merge the two, and thereby save some indirect costs. Project work continues as usual, but now under the Samso Energy Academy as the continuing organisation.
