Brenda Martin: SAWEA CEO
The global energy transition away from Coal, underpinned by related decisive knowledge and policy shifts in the areas of climate, society and economy, is well underway. In this context SAWEA has begun to implement its next 3-year business plan to 2020 with a focus on achieving an integrated energy transition.
SAWEA’s vision: A thriving commercial Wind power industry in South Africa, part of a growing domestic and international renewable power industry that is recognised as a major contributor to social, environmental and economic security.
Under the theme of Knowledge for an integrated energy transition, the third annual WindAc Africa conference programme will consider a diverse range of technical, operational and socio-economic topics. As always, the conference is attended by a blend of national and international participants who will present their research and findings from practice. The programme includes presentation sessions in plenary, exhibits and many opportunities to network with academics, students and industry players. The conference will precede SAWEA’s annual Wind Industry conference Windaba, which takes place later that week under the theme Investment for an integrated energy transition.
Please join us for two days of dynamic, diverse, contemporary knowledge exchange in one of World’s most beautiful cities.
