NCPC-SA and South African pavilion at Africa Utility Week

The NCPC-SA will be one of the technical partners of the annual Africa Utility Week in Cape Town next week, 15 to 17 May 2018. The Centre, represented on the advisory board of the event, believes the conference and supporting exhibition will once again be an excellent platform for discussing and sharing on issues around energy and water. 
African Utility Week takes place at the International Convention Centre in Cape Town. This event has been running for 18 consecutive years and has established itself as the largest power and water utilities exhibition and conference on the African continent. 
The conference attracts over 1,500 delegates from the entire energy value chain – policy makers, ministries, regulators, utilities, project developers, financiers and EPCs – to discuss energy plans for the African continent and find solutions to secure our energy security.
In support of a sustainable and growing energy sector in South Africa, the NCPC-SA and Africa Utility Week has put together an exhibition of energy support programmes - primarily public sector initiatives and institutions - to allow companies to seek and get advice on the support that is available in this evolving field.
Most of the exhibitors are also the partners of the largest national project on energy efficiency – the South African Industrial Energy Efficiency Project; namely the Department of Energy, the National Cleaner Production Centre SA (NCPC-SA), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (South Africa), the South African National Energy Development Institute (Sanedi), and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). 
Companies and individuals can visit the South African pavilion to seek advice on:
  • Energy management and reporting 
  • Energy policies and regulations
  • Energy efficiency incentives and support
  • Subsidised training in energy and resource efficiency 
  • Expertise on R&D and energy development 
Exhibition attendance is free of charge and the exhibition includes a series of Technical workshops (click for programme) alongside the main conference.
