NBI Online Event: Energy Management, Crises and Competitiveness
Wednesday, 5 August 2020 14:00 to 15:30
Energy efficiency is the basis for competitiveness, long-term resilience and a vital part of a business’ crisis management toolkit. Integrating ambitious energy targets into a business strategy therefore allows leading companies to drive innovation in energy efficiency; achieving significant long-term value and increased reliability by:
Reducing individual utility bills;
Decreasing backup generation needs and up-front capital costs;
Helping to stabilise electricity prices and volatility;
Generating revenue and supporting the grid of the future; and
Decreasing life-cycle costs and increasing value.
You will hear from Woolworths and Sasol, two leading South African companies who are EP100 members, as they reflect on their individual energy productivity journey, commitments to double energy productivity and actions they have taken in support of this goal. They will cover how resilience planning, implementing new energy technology and decreasing energy demand in facilities, have benefitted their business, increased overall resilience, contributed to sustainability targets and minimised vulnerabilities to climate-related impacts. You will also hear from the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy, speaking on South Africa’s efficiency strategy and programmes landscape and the Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings and Infrastructure Programme.
