Every March is Energy Month in South Africa; a time to focus on the importance of energy to the economy, to powering our infrastructure and to people’s everyday lives.

An important aspect of the energy sector is that of green industrial development, particularly in the fields of renewable energy, bio fuels, turning waste into energy and the creation of systems to reduce CO₂ emissions and pollution management. Prominence is given to this sector in strategy documents such as the New Growth Path and the National Development Plan.

The green energy agenda is a priority focus for us in creating a greener economy, supporting job creation, boosting local economies – and sharing our know-how.
