Heat pump industry joins sustainable energy forum

Following meetings of key heat pump industry stakeholders hosted by the Sustainable Energy Society of Southern Africa (SESSA) in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban during June, SESSA has been given the mandate to establish a national heat pump division.  A non-profit organisation dedicated to the creation and continued growth of renewable energy and energy efficiency, SESSA already represents more than 500 members through its solar water heating division and an additional 120 through its solar photovoltaic division. Other SESSA initiatives include opportunity builders like Young SESSA, solar cooking and Sunpower for Life.  Establishing a heat pump division will create a voice for the industry and facilitate the expansion of more energy-efficient technology as well as supporting SESSA’s endeavours to create a low carbon society.

New umbrella body for renewable energy

Four leading renewable energy associations recently announced their intention to launch an umbrella body to act as a single voice championing the renewable energy industry in South Africa. The announcement followed the Green Economy Accord which was concluded towards the end of 2011 through a series of engagements involving government, business, labour and community at Nedlac. The accord envisages focused action to address climate change concerns and the need to grow the South African economy by simultaneously stimulating the green economy and creating ‘green jobs’.  Pancho Ndebele, chair of the Southern African Solar Thermal and Electricity Association (SASTELA), said, “Creating a united voice for renewable energy custodians is imperative at this juncture in the development of the industry. Both the private sector and NGOs have for many years been promoting renewable energy in an uncertain regulatory environment. Their efforts were never fully coordinated and it has taken time to get to where we are today, on the verge of exponential growth in the broader renewable energy industry. As signatories to the Green Economy Accord we have now taken steps to discharge the obligations we have undertaken, one of which is to create an umbrella body.“
