The Coal Industry Day
Brought to you by the organisers of the Junior and Joburg Indabas, this one-day conference will focus on the economic, financial and environmental factors influencing coal mining in Southern Africa. Despite the move away from coal towards cleaner, renewable energies in certain parts of the world, energy demand in Africa is on the rise and coal, being a relatively cheap and plentiful source of energy, will continue to play an important role in Africa’s energy mix for decades to come.
2019 Coal Industry Day
For Producers, Traders, Investors & Users
Wednesday 24 July 2019
The Country Club Johannesburg, Auckland Park
The structure of the coal industry in Southern Africa is undergoing significant change, with some of the larger coal producers divesting assets, creating opportunities for smaller and mid-tier producers. What does this mean for the future of coal supply? On the other side, Eskom’s woes are forcing coal suppliers to look elsewhere for markets. Where is demand coming from, both locally and internationally, and how is this changing?
This one-day event will bring together all the key stakeholders involved in the coal supply chain - Government, miners, traders, logistics providers, finance organisations, environmental and legal experts independent consultants and more – to discuss and debate the future of coal in Southern Africa and the challenges and opportunities for coal producers.
Key topics that will be discussed include:
- The changing landscape of the coal industry in Southern Africa
- The role of coal in resolving Eskom’s generation capacity and Southern African energy’s needs
- Strategies of the major and junior coal producers
- Investors’ and funders’ perspectives on coal and alternative energy sources
- The role of renewable energies and clean coal technologies in Southern Africa’s energy mix
- The Carbon Tax Bill and its implications
- And much more…….
