Approved by the World Energy Council-African Energy Indaba signs official agreement with WEC & SANEA

The Africa Energy Indaba has officially partnered with the South African National Energy Association (SANEA) and the World Energy Council (WEC). Chairman of SANEA and the Conference Chairman of the African Energy Indaba, Brian Statham, Secretary General of the World Energy Council , Dr Christophe Frei and CEO and owner of the African Energy Indaba , Liz Hart, formalised this highly anticipated partnership on 6 June 2011.


The WEC is the foremost multi-energy organisation in the world today. WEC has member committees  in nearly 100 countries throughout the world, including most of the largest energy-producing and energy consuming countries, focusing on all types of energy including coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, hydro, and renewables. The SANEA is the South African member committee of the WEC, representing a hub for the exchange of energy related information as well as is the largest energy industry association in Sub-Saharan Africa, representing all energy companies.



The African Energy Indaba  is innovative in their approach to ensuring the conference addresses issues of importance and that are current in the energy sector in Africa.  This approach stems from the formation of a steering committee comprising industry experts hand-picked  from across the industries with a predetermined view on who should present on current topical issues ensuring the provision of a professional product in the form of a world class event. This way, the forum is unique in its approach with a diversity of industry professionals well versed on energy issues as well as issues requiring attention.  As such, the programme is always relative to the African energy community year on year.  The first committee meeting convened on 6 July 2011 to finalise the programme for the upcoming event. 


The African Energy Indaba Steering Committee is represented by:


Brian Statham, SANEA Chairman; Shaun Nel,  Programme Director for the Energy Intensive Users Group (EIUG); Anthony Golding, South African Department of Energy (DoE); Avhapfani Tshifularo, South African Petroleum Industry Association (SAPIA); Barry Bredenkamp, National Energy Efficiency Association (NEEA); Elsa Du Toit, SAHA International; Greg Nott, International lawyer, Jonathan de Magalhaes, Ubuntu Energy; Dr Latsoucabe Fall, WEC Africa and Professor Mosad Elmissary, NEPAD Agency.


The Africa Energy Indaba will serve as a platform to discuss Africa’s energy future, coming up with innovative solutions on how Africans can meet the increasing demand for energy and how this can all be done in a cost effective and efficient manner.
