2019 SAEEC Energy Awards: Nominations now open

The Southern African Energy Efficiency Confederation (SAEEC) Awards Programme annually recognises outstanding accomplishments of individuals and companies in the energy industry. Through our Awards Programme, SAEEC shines the light on the important work that is being done in energy by individuals, organisations, government, agencies, and corporations.

The Awards are a token of recognition for the commitment to the profession; desire to further the Confederation’s goal of advancing the continuous improvement of Energy management in contributing to sustainable energy consumption, inclusive economic growth and climate change mitigation. These prestigious Awards are presented at the Annual SAEEC Banquet and Awards Ceremony to be held at Farm Inn, Silverlakes, Pretoria on 14 November 2019.

Each award is allocated specific judging criteria and many awards share similar criteria. In the interests of clarity, these criteria are defined in detail here. These are the guidelines the SAEEC’s Technical Committee will refer to when they make their decisions.

How digitisation has enabled smart homes and buildings

Lights only operate when someone is there; air conditioners are central yet create climate zones for differing comfort levels; banks of computers or other machines can be ‘put to sleep’ after a period of non-activity; lifts only switch on lights when called; underground carparks remain dark until movement occurs and so the list goes on.

The fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is pushing energy efficiency, as more and more items become digitised. The internet of things (IoT) includes the refrigerator in your home, the aircon in your office and the entire production process in your factory. The more efficiently these run, the less energy is expended.

Tax incentives for cool surfaces

The Cool Surfaces Project, managed by the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI), seeks to cool buildings using energy-passive technology, especially in areas where electricity supply is limited or absent.

The 12L Tax Incentive, according to the Income Tax Act, 1962 (Act No. 58 of 1962) allows for a tax deduction of 95c/kwh saved on energy consumption. This is applicable to all energy carriers, not just electricity, with the exception of renewable energy sources and in the case of cool surfaces, would only apply to larger commercial and industrial-size projects.

The School of Engineering at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), in collaboration with the Southern African Regional Branch of the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) and the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) presented a three day International Training Seminar on Managing Waste as a Resource. Along with a five day Summer School as an introduction to the new coursework’s Master of Science in Engineering in Waste and Resources Management (WaRM).

The Master of Science in Engineering in WaRM Course will become available from 2019. The course was designed to provide engineering and science graduates with theoretical, research and design knowledge. This knowledge can be applied in providing engineering solutions to various environmental problems. Such solutions are compliant with the environmental regulations and essentially focus on waste and resources management.

Official opening of The Greening of the Earth Centre

The partnership between the University of South Africa (Unisa), mining company Exxaro Resources and the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) officially launched its first institutional anaerobic biogas digester at Earth Centre in Johannesburg this week.

The 10 cubic metre bio-digester uses a feedstock of horse manure diluted with a sustainable volume of water, including grey water, to produce biogas fuel for heating applications. In households, schools, early childhood development centres and community facilities, the fuel can be used for as a substitute for electricity or LPG. It can be used for cooking, water heating, space heating and lighting.

Natural Resource Preservation Starts at Home

South Africa currently boasts a population of approximately 57.7 million according to Statistics South Africa. At present, an estimated 86% has access to electricity while more than 5 million individuals still do not have access to clean running water. If there are two things that South Africans know all too well, it is load shedding and water shortages. While inherently being a country filled with natural resources, the supply is by no means infinite. In order to minimize interruptions in service delivery and ensure that there will be enough resources available for generations to come, every individual has to take the necessary steps to reduce personal consumption at their homes...
