Clean Energy for South Africa


Energy is required, in some form or other, in all areas of human existence.  The questions then arise, what energy source does one use and to what end? What criteria are used to make decisions and how do these decisions effect downstream applications? This seminar aims to outline SANEDI and what it is/does, energy sources available, how South Africa gets its energy and what is happening in the energy mix and finally options for energy efficiency as well as possible renewable energy interventions.  The topics of resources, choice of technology, cost and benefits will be addressed.
