Special Invitation for the SAIEE Community to the SANEA Conference on 21 & 22 October


To all of our big energy thinkers


The excitement is building for the South African Energy Association (SANEA) Conference being hosted on 21 – 22 October 2021


When the SANEA Conference Task Team first built the programme, we knew that it was going to be an excellent programme but as speakers have confirmed and ideas have grown, the event has evolved into an incredibly dynamic event with a line up of impressive speakers from the energy sector and business arena.

The conference will be hosting a wealth energy sector leaders who will be participating as speakers in the sessions where we will unpack and have crucial discussions that are well needed in our sector as we unlock the possibilities of energy sustainability in Africa.


Our keynote speakers, Gwede Mantashe, Minister of Minerals and Energy Resources, Andre de Ruyter, Group CEO of Eskom Holdings, and well known author and social activist, Dr Crispian Olver,
Executive Director, Presidential Climate Commission.  Two of our stream keynote speakers are Dr Ishmael Poolo, Chief Executive Officer, CEF Group of Companies and Marista Fey, Senior Vice President Strategy and Planning, Sasol Energy. 


The thought leadership of the conference has been structured around the urgencies identified in the SANEA Energy Risk Report, which impact the current landscape and future of the energy sector, therefore focussing on a framework of 4I’s.  The conference will host keynote speakers and breakaways streams focussing on:

·       Innovation

·       Implementation

·       Impact

·       Integration

·       With people at the centre of driving in these areas

It is crucial for the energy sector to understand the which risk are changing and/or are emerging at the fastest pace and what opportunities for South Africa’s are time sensitive.  Therefore, one question being, are we responding rapidly enough?
