Carbon Tax Workshop

 

 

 

Carbon tax can be said to be present and imminent in South Africa and it is slated to affect all industries. However, it is apparent that phase 1 of the carbon tax will penalise companies whose primary source of emission is energy generation. Therefore, the obvious conclusion is that using less energy will be essential to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and the consequent steep tax for heavy emitters.

However, to the stick of carbon tax, there is the carrot of the section 12L tax incentive for energy efficiency. Section 12L benefits companies that implement energy efficiency interventions to decrease their energy intensity and employ Measurement and Verification (M&V) to quantify the energy savings for the purpose of a tax allowance. The section 12L tax incentive is currently at 95 c/kWh for energy savings.

Carbon tax and section 12L, with M&V as a core service that provides risk assurance offer opportunities for companies, engineers and consultants in the heavy industrial sectors. Therefore, the Southern African Energy Efficiency Confederation (SAEEC), an active chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) took the initiative in hosting a workshop for its members exploring these opportunities.
The workshop was held on the 12th April 2019 at the Eskom Learning Academy in Midrand sponsored by Catalyst Solutions, Cova Advisory and SANEDI.

Green Hour Podcasts

31 December 2017

In 2011 The Southern African Energy Efficiency Confederation (SAEEC) joined forces with Gareth Burley, on Kingfisher FM in Nelson Mandela Bay, to start a national conversation on energy efficiency called The Green Hour radio show. The show won two prestigious awards in 2012 namely the International Association of Energy Engineers Best Community Project and Eskom’s eta Award in the Energy Efficiency Awareness category. Green Hour (GH) show topics are selected on the basis that they show case champions in our communities that have made sustainable differences and to share their energy saving tips. The Green Hour continues to share these good news stories and inspire others on Wednesday mornings at 08h00 live on Kingfisher FM, 103.8 and 107.5, in Nelson Mandela Bay.

Many people told me that they were happy to see the back of it, and, with some of the external changes, they are more optimistic for 2018.
