Future Energy Conversations

The Future Energy Conversations bring together thought leaders to discuss the tough questions around energy, climate change and sustainability.

This series hopes to spark conversations for those who want to develop a deeper understanding about the challenges and opportunities associated with these. It also provides a platform for people to share inspiring case studies on the journey to carbon neutrality by 2050.


Here are some of the themes we will be covering in the discussions:  

  • A Just Urban Transition: Energy is the key to the future we want

  • The energy system as a mechanism for transformation

  • Spatial Development and a new way of moving: Why a denser, better-designed urban fabric means a healthier, more equitable Cape Town

  • The future of SA's electricity grid

  • Solar PV and battery storage

  • Circular economy: a new way of thinking about waste

  • Water: resilience and learning from the drought
