Buffalo City looking for alternative energy solutions

Buffalo City looking for alternative energy solutions

Having invested over R500-million in the past 10 years on new electricity substations, Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality kicked off the two-day Energy Indaba this morning with a welcome address by the Executive Mayor Xola Pakati at the East London ICC. 

The indaba is hosting experts from across the country to find alternative solutions towards energy.

Speaking at the event Pakati said, “Our view as the City should be characterised by rapid and inclusive economic growth with falling unemployment, poverty and the reduction of inequalities. All of this can happen if there is a stable and sufficient energy supply in our Metro.”

The indaba is held under the theme Alternative Energy Solutions for Sustainable Development

Other speaking giving advise on how the metro should shape its energy solutions include Rui Silva from Beka Schreder who spoke on the benefits of LED Street lights vs Conventional Street lights; Subash Dowlath from SDP Holdings who gave a talk on the solutions to non-ferrous theft and Illegal connections amongst others.

The Indaba will be attended by energy industry role players and will feature presentations, case studies and panel discussions on critical issues like curbing illegal connections, funding options, green energy, modern electricity metering and LED street lighting vs conventional street lighting.

The event ends on Tuesday 21 November.
