Dr. Sea Rotmann is a behaviour change consultant from Wellington, New Zealand. She has a PhD in marine ecology and environmental studies, but has focused on sustainability implementation in policy, practice, and research, since 2005. In late 2011, she started her own consultancy called SEA – Sustainable Energy Advice Ltd, focusing on turning behaviour change theory into (global) best practice by incorporating socio-ecological thinking with strategic design frameworks.
Sea ran the first global research collaboration on behaviour change in demand-side management for the User-Centered Energy Systems Technology Collaboration Programme (Users TCP) by the International Energy Agency from 2012 to 2018. Sea is now leading a Users TCP research collaboration on Hard-to-Reach energy users (“HTR Annex”) in the residential and commercial sectors.
