Day 2 at the Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency Convention (2013 SAEEC) facilitated the tracks, “Mining and industrial efficiency”; “Measurement and verification (M&V)”; “Cogeneration” and “Renewable and alternative energy”.

With South Africa’s continued reliance on coal, the mining track focused on increasing efficiencies in our mines and industry while reducing losses.

In the M&V track, case studies were delivered on projects and opportunities available with an emphasis on the credibility of M&V and the systematic approach to consistent reporting.

Co-generation attracted the most interest with both international and local speakers addressing the inefficiencies of applications and exploring new opportunities for power generation.

The progress of the fast-growing renewable and alternative energy industries was showcased in the final track, which stated the case for the efficiencies of solar, wind and nuclear.

A total of 35 exhibitors showcased energy saving technologies, financing, and partnership opportunities.
