About EnergyWeek South Africa
EnergyWeek South Africa is an annual meeting taking place from 11-12 December in Cape Town to discuss the progress of energy projects in Southern Africa. Alongside the Black Industrialists Energy Summit will be the Southern Africa Renewable Energy Summit and the International Gas Cooperation Summit. These three meetings will collectively explore opportunities for gas and renewable energy project development and local capacity building in the region.
The International Gas Cooperation Summit
This meeting is a platform to explore South Africa’s aspirations to build an energy hub for gas cooperation with international partners along the gas value chain. The Summit will put the objectives of South Africa and the region at the forefront of international gas development, showcasing South Africa as a gas hub. IGCS will outline the next steps of the Gas IPP Programme and the scale of opportunity for investors.
IGCS will showcase gas procurement and utilisation strategies, bringing together a global gathering of energy leaders who will enable Southern Africa to achieve its objectives in becoming an energy hub for the region. This meeting is co-located with the Southern Africa Renewable Energy Summit and the Black Industrialists Energy Summit.
The Southern Africa Renewable Energy Summit
In partnership with the IPP Office and the Southern Africa Renewable Energy Council (SAREC), the Southern Africa Renewable Energy Summit (SARES) will take place from 11-12 December in Cape Town. Over the next few years, Southern African countries will spend millions upgrading their renewable energy capabilities to bring electricity to larger and larger swaths of their populations.
SARES will focus on this region’s huge potential for the generation of renewable energy to boost national energy grids and vastly expand access to reliable electricity. Drawing on lessons learnt from South Africa’s successful REIPPP Programme the summit will outline renewable energy objectives for the next decade, uniting governments, DFIs and private investors in the aim of securing a sustainable energy future.
