Severn Wye Energy Agency is an independent, national charity and not-for-profit company which aims to promote sustainable energy and affordable warmth through partnership, awareness-raising, innovation and strategic action.

The charity's aim is to help everyone within the communities it serves to enjoy the benefits that energy can bring, without reducing the ability of future generations to do the same.

Originally established in 1999 under the European Commission SAVE programme, Severn Wye works with a wide range of clients and funders – from private businesses and government bodies, through to local community groups, charity organisations and schools.

It runs a portfolio of projects covering energy efficiency, renewable energy, affordable warmth and sustainable transport mainly focusing on areas like Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Wales – although it works across the UK on other projects. The charity also manages a free, local and impartial energy advice line for householders.

Severn Wye's charitable aims are:

The advancement of education for the public benefit in relation to energy conservation, energy efficiency and the use of renewable sources of energy.
The relief of fuel poverty and the preservation and protection of health by promoting the efficient use of energy and use of renewable sources of energy.
