PROPERTY: Energy Efficiency Forum Launched

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA), working in collaboration with the South African Council for Shopping Centres (SACSC), Eskom and the City of Cape Town is launching a new Energy Efficiency Forum for commercial property owners and managers on 21 October at the Civic Centre in Cape Town.

This forum is also supported by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA), Provincial Government of the Western Cape and Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). 

The Energy Efficiency Forum aims to provide owners and managers of offices, shopping centres, hotels and other commercial and public buildings with practical knowledge on energy efficiency solutions, and will also serve as a platform for collective action and shared learning.

Vuyani Hako, Chairman of the SAPOA Western Cape region says, “Energy efficiency has become increasingly critical in the context of rising electricity tariffs and a medium-term shortage of supply. The economic recession, forthcoming legislation and the need to reduce environmental impact are also important considerations that call for a concerted effort towards finding solutions and working with other commercial property owners to improve energy efficiency.”

The formation of the Energy Efficiency Forum follows a recent SAPOA workshop, held in September 2009. This workshop was well attended, with excellent participation from commercial property delegates. And it was here that it was decided that there is a definite need for a regular forum to address energy efficiency issues and provide ongoing education on energy related matters.
