Project Description

The National Energy Dialogue

The Central Energy Fund has partnered with the Financial Mail and Mkokeli Advisory to host the National Energy Dialogue which includes a diverse list of speakers. Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe delivered the keynote address.

It was the perfect opportunity to expand on some of the pronouncements in the recent State of the Nation Address.

It examined relevant policy instruments, including the Integrated Resource Plan. It also discussed the South African approach to the Just Transition and associated plans to achieve energy sustainability.
