The South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) was established in 2011 under the National Energy Act, 2008 (Act No. 34 of 2008). The Act provides for SANEDI to direct, monitor and conduct energy research and development, promote energy research and technology innovation as well as undertake measures to promote energy efficiency throughout the economy.
SANEDI’s energy development agenda is a key part of our country’s energy journey. SANEDI’s portfolio of initiatives are closely attuned to technology advancements, declining technology costs and continued innovation in the energy sector. As a whole, these can enable South Africa to take full advantage of our energy resources and the associated infrastructure development as a vehicle for economic growth, industrialisation, employment creation and sustainable development.
Sustainable living for growth and prosperity in Africa.
Using applied and energy research and resource efficiency to develop innovative, integrated solutions that will catalyse growth and prosperity.
