The Sustainable Energy Resource Seminar
WhenJul 27, 2012
from 08:40 AM to 07:00 PM
Context: Smart Grids for SA Cities
The move to a more sustainable approach to energy, among other things, requires a decentralisation of production coupled with energy efficiency. This is typified by multiple small producers feeding into a two way grid that optimises peak demand through a matrix of buy/sell rates. This incentivises users to adapt their demand to maximise their energy savings/income.
Can you contribute meaningfully to the debate? Join this session at Sustainability Week and be involved in affecting our evolving urban environment.
South Africa is awarding tenders to Independent Power Producers:
South Africa is busy awarding tenders to Independent Power Producers as part of a national bid to increase the renewable energy contribution to the national grid. Bidders from around the world together with South African partners and global financiers are actively bidding for these tenders in the form of solar and wind farms along with a number of other technologies and solutions.This is a major break-through for South Africa and heralds a huge step in the direction towards sustainability for the country.
Attend this seminar to learn more about the process and get an update on winning bids and what these winners will be bringing to the table.
Leading experts from SA and abroad will deliver presentations, followed by a panel discussion to discuss the potential for SA inherent in this exciting process.
