ACTION FOR ENERGY 2009
A SANEA Initiative

The focus of the "Action for Energy 2009" event was on what needs to be done to achieve a sustainable energy future for all South Africans. The 2-day programme provided an overview of the issues facing Energy Leaders today and presenters have been specifically invited to talk on topics where they are known to have current expertise.

"Now, more than ever, South Africa, and indeed the world, needs well-informed, proactive and inspirational leadership on energy matters," said Brian Statham, Chairman of SANEA. "SANEA has as a prime objective the dissemination of information and the facilitation of dialogue on energy matters, covering the supply and use of energy and all the related elements necessary for a sustainable energy future."

"Given the breadth and complexity of the Energy Sector it is very difficult to keep up to date with the issues facing Energy Leaders today. Ironically, emerging leaders and support staff are frequently channeled into particular lines of activity simply to keep up with the demands placed on them. The result is narrower focus and insular thinking at the very time when decision making requires the broadest possible context if we are to effectively transition to a new energy based society and economy," he said.

SANEA ENERGY AWARDS 2009

In presenting the awards Brian A Statham, the Chairman of SANEA paid tribute to the many men and women who are striving on a daily basis to ensure that South Africa enjoys a stable and secure energy future.

"Energy that is accessible, available and acceptable is essential for social and economic progress and South Africans are becoming increasingly aware of the value of our energy resources. The need for informed debate, integrated planning and cohesive action is as important now as it has ever been in our history" said Statham.

"We need to recognise and celebrate those who are shaping the energy landscape. Some achievements come from large corporations while others come from individuals working at a local level. All are important and tonight we acknowledge and salute their efforts in the belief that their achievements will inspire others." Statham added "SANEA's Vision of 'Energy People Working Together' is alive tonight as many people from different sectors of South African society come together to congratulate these winners."

The premier "Energy Award" went to Dr Rob Adams for his life-long work promoting technology development and particularly for his work on nuclear power. Also commended in this award category were AngloGold Ashanti for their energy efficiency focus, SASOL Limited for the commercial development of coal to liquid-fuel technology and Clean Coal Research unit at the North-West University for their work on the beneficial use of this important energy resource.

The Energy Project Award went to the Kuyasa CDM Project, the first CDM project to be registered in Africa and the first Gold Standard project to be registered anywhere in the world. Lorna Cook was commended for her initiative in creating voluntary "Energy Officers" to drive energy savings in businesses throughout South Africa while Energy Cybernetics & North-West University were commended for developing the PowerWatch technology that enables industry to monitor and control its own energy use.

The media can be very influential and the Energy Journalism Award went to Chris Yelland for his tireless campaigning for better performance, enhanced standards and more transparency in the energy sector. Hilary Joffe was commended for her objective and informative writing in the daily press while Marlene Raubenheimer was commended for launching a monthly journal that focused on sustainable energy initiatives across the African continent.

The final category was Energy Education where the award went to Prof Jan Reynders for a life time of research and education in the electrical engineering field and his service on countless technical committees where he unstintingly passed on his knowledge and experience. Thea Holm was commended for her efforts to educate residents and scholars in the Hartebeespoort Dam area on the benefits of re-cycling and living a "renewable energy" lifestyle.
