Our Vision

An Energy Secure Sri Lanka

Our Mission

To guide the nation in all its efforts to develop indigenous energy resources and conserve energy resources through exploration, facilitation, research & development and knowledge management in the journey of national development, paving the way for Sri Lanka to gain energy security by protecting natural, human and economic wealth by embracing best sustainability practices.


The Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority was established on 01 October 2007, enacting the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority Act No. 35 of 2007 (Link to the E-library, sub category Acts) of the Parliament of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. The SLSEA was established to realise the necessity of having an apex institution to drive Sri Lanka towards a new level of sustainability in energy generation and usage, through increasing indigenous energy and improving energy efficiency within the country.

Who we are

“In Sri Lanka, WE TOO need to find a better way of doing things…which make better use of our own abundant natural resources… A fresh paradigm towards a permanent truce with nature,….in concurrence with her pace... and in sync with her rhythm.”
