There is no doubt that the uptake of generators and standby power is increasing as companies aim to address the interrupted grid energy supply. This is despite the generator industry facing various challenges owing to the struggling south African economy. The increase in this uptake can be attributed to poor maintenance of ageing substations, unstable transformers, cable theft and overloading on the national power grid amongst other reasons. With the construction and mining sectors being the biggest spenders on generators and standby power, scaling back on equipment and big projects spending has been noted in these sectors. This has impacted negatively on the output from these sectors. Traditional standard generators remain a standard solution for most companies in the country although other alternative sources of energy are being explored. Various innovations in the generators and standby power are gaining momentum with the aim to address the issues of power supply. While the generators and standby power alternatives are coming in handy in the country, issues such as health and safety, compliance, installation regulations, maintenance are still hot issues that require continuous discussions. It is against this background that this conference has been organised. Various issues affecting the generators and standby power subject will be discussed. Topics will include, technological developments in generators as backup energy suppliers, importing of generators, risk factors in generators and standby power and mitigation plans amongst other topics. This is a must attend event to all those interested in the alternative standby power.

The industry-leading 2017SAEEC Conference features parallel seminars and exhibitions that tie into this year’s theme: “Energy efficiency for sustainable growth and prosperity.” Actions in the energy sector can make or break efforts to achieve the world’s agreed climate goal. Energy production and use account for around two-thirds of global greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions, meaning that the energy sector must be at the heart of global action to tackle climate change (IEA, 2015). The SAEEC believes that energy is one of the single most important drivers of socioeconomic development and human well-being. Energy efficiency in particular, saves money amidst rising energy costs. It also drives innovative green technologies, supports a cleaner environment and will enhance competitiveness in a world committed to reducing GHG emissions through climate change. Join various stakeholders from the energy sector to understand the policy frameworks and progress of initiatives that link your own efforts towards sustainable growth and prosperity as a professional, business or organisation.
