Coal & Energy Transition Day



 


2022 Coal & Energy Transition Day

Meeting Energy Needs for the Future

Wednesday 27 July 2022
08h45-17h30

Brought to you by Resources for Africa, the organisers of the Joburg Indaba, the Coal & Energy Transition Day took place at the Country Club Johannesburg, Auckland Park (and online) on Wednesday 27th July. With the global drive towards decarbonization and net zero emissions, the discussions this year focused on the just transition away from coal and the shift towards greener energy solutions.

The current challenges and opportunities facing the coal industry in light of the war in Ukraine, the global pressures on traditional energy sources and the increasing urgency to decarbonise were discussed at length, as well as: what will Southern Africa’s future energy mix look like? What is the potential for alternative and renewable energy sources to solve the energy challenges? How can we transition away from coal in an ethically and economically responsible manner? And how do we fund the projects that will form part of the future energy landscape?

Leaders from government, industry, coal producers, alternative energy providers, investors, funders and independent experts discussed key issues such as:

  • What is the impact of current geo/political developments on global energy needs?
  • How are circumstances impacting the role of coal in meeting the world’s energy needs in the short and medium term?
  • Are we seeing an extension of the life of coal as a result?
  • What will Southern Africa’s future energy mix look like?
  • What actions does the industry need to take to begin the energy transition and move away from coal?
  • What is being done to create ‘green coal’ throughout the value chain?
  • What is the role of renewable energy in the energy transition?
  • Who will fund the green revolution and what funding is available for alternative energy projects?
  • What are Eskom’s plans for meeting energy demand and its views on coal and alternative energy sources?
  • What are Transnet’s plans for increasing capacity and protecting its rail infrastructure?
  • And much more...


The Coal & Energy Transition Day will return next year. We look forward to seeing you there!
