Governance

Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) is an independent, not-for-profit, international organization, with headquarters in Vienna under Austrian law. We also have a satellite office in Washington, DC, United States.

The organization's overall guidance for strategic direction and policymaking is provided by the SEforALL Administrative Board.

SEforALL has a Relationship Agreement with the United Nations, signed in December 2016 and reviewed every 5 years.

Principal governing body

The Administrative Board is SEforALL's principal governing body. Its Chair, António Luis Guerra Nunes Mexia, CEO of Energias de Portugal (EDP), and 10 members handle all policymaking decisions, including appointing the CEO and approving the annual work plan. 

Funding

SEforALL relies on partner contributions to fund its operations.

Our Funding Partners comprise the Funders' Council, a consultative group that provides advice and recommendations to the CEO and Administrative Board. They also nominate a Council Chair that also serves on the Administrative Board. The Funders’ Council is currently chaired by the representative from the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
