The Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE) aims to become the Association in Southern Africa that brings all energy stakeholders in the region together. In order to achieve this synergy, the SAEE is hosting the 11th Southern African Energy Efficiency Convention (2016SAEEC) on 08 - 09 November 2016, at Emperors Palace, Johannesburg, South Africa, as an event serving the energy management-, environmental-, facilities building upgrades-, energy engineering-, cogeneration-, power generation-, and efficiency improvement industries.

The 2016SAEEC is an important energy event of national scope for end-users and energy professionals in all areas of the energy field. It is the one truly comprehensive forum where you can fully assess the  big picture  – and see exactly how all the economic and market forces, new technologies, regulatory developments and industry trends merge to shape the critical decisions on your organisation's energy and economic future.

The 2016SAEEC features a convention agenda with seminars and exhibition on a variety of current topics and a comprehensive overview of the  Energy Efficiency @ Work, as well as a banquet to mark the official opening of the event.
