SANEA, the South African National Energy Association, is very pleased to announce that two of its nominees, Avesh Padayachee and Pule Segale, have been selected for the prestigious global World Energy Council FELS 100 programme.

Pule Segale

Avesh Padayachee









The Council admits 100 Future Energy Leaders to a 3-year part-time global programme of specific learning and mentorship designed to position participants for future global leadership positions. Each year 35 participants graduate, opening space for 35 new entrants.

Dave Wright, the association’s secretary general, says the competition was stiff with 160 nominees from all over the world vying for the 35 positions, making Padayachee’s and Segale’s achievement really significant.

Wright says these two men will not only benefit from being part of this global programme but they will also ensure that the South African perspective is shared with the faculty and other participants. The two will also engage with SANEA’s own youth programme and their international development experience will provide important input to the local initiative.
