Banquet & Awards Ceremony: 31 August 2018

The Chairman and Board of SANEA cordially invite you and your guests to attend the 2018 Banquet and Awards Ceremony in the company of distinguished guests and leaders and top achievers in the Energy Sector.

We are very pleased that the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) has again chosen to collaborate with SANEA in recognizing South Africans and their achievements, specifically by promoting awards in the research and innovation sectors.

South Africans love a good celebration and now is the time to get-together; a time to collaborate in singing the praises of the many South Africans who are using their personal ingenuity to change the face of energy in South Africa. We, the citizens of this great country, know these people because they are changing our lives for the better.

Please join forces with SANEA on Friday, 31 August 2018 when we shout their names out loud and tell their stories so that they may be an inspiration to those who follow.

“Thinking Energy”

is the rallying cry of SANEA as it continues to honour and celebrate the achievements of companies, organizations and individuals that are making an effort to ensure and contribute to a sustained and healthy energy sector. Some of these are high profile and have become household names while many are the hard working “behind the scenes” type who quietly get on and deliver. All are important to the development of South Africa.

These are the individuals, organisations and companies that SANEA and SANEDI would like to recognise for their efforts to promote and provide an ongoing and secure energy supply and use for the benefit of all. These are the individuals and organisations that deserve to have their role recorded in the history of the South African Energy Sector. These are the people and organisations that merit nomination for one of the 2018 SANEA Energy Awards.

It is these people that we would like to know about. It is these names that we would like to bring forward to thank. It is these to whom we wish to pay our respects.

We depend on you to identify those who are doing amazing things. The achievements may be big or small, but all will have done something beyond the ordinary; all will be examples of what can be achieved if we put our minds to it.

We look forward to receiving nominations from you!
