2020 SAEEC Conference: 4-6 November 2020 (Livestream event)

We are striving towards achieving the world’s agreed climate change goal of 2030, and our programme this year promises to deliver.

The industry-leading 15th Annual SAEEC Conference features seminars and exhibitions that tie into re-igniting the energy industry.

We are proud to announce that Professor Adam Habib, Vice Chancellor of the University of the Witwatersrand and Mr. Brian Motherway of the International Energy Agency, will deliver the two keynote addresses at the opening session of the 2020 SAEEC Conference.

The SAEEC believes that energy is one of the single most important drivers of socioeconomic development and human well-being. Energy efficiency in particular, saves money amidst rising energy costs. It also drives innovative green technologies, supports a cleaner environment and will enhance competitiveness in a world committed to reducing GHG emissions through climate change.

The conference tracks cover topics of great importance towards gender mainstreaming, e-Mobility, alternative generation and finance and incentives on the Carbon Tax.

Join stakeholders from the energy sector to understand the policy frameworks and progress of initiatives that link your own efforts towards sustainable growth, and reignite the energy industry as a professional, a business or an organisation.

The SAEEC’s continuous search for information dissemination, awareness, and linking stakeholders is represented in this, its flagship event, the 2020SAEEC Conference. Celebrating it’s fifteenth year, 2020SAEEC has something for stakeholders across the energy industry:
