SAPVIA has partnered with SAWEA, DMRE and WE Connect that brought about a conversation with some of the leading women in Renewable Energy. This webinar mapped the opportunities and discussed the contribution of women and youth in the sector. The session led to the announcement of the newly joint SAPVIA/SAWEA initiative - Developing Developers Programme - which will launch in September 2020.

Energy Storage Chapter
The South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE) hosted a two-day webinar series titled Unlocking and Enabling Storage as a sector for South Africa.
Due to growing concerns about the environmental impacts of fossil fuels and the capacity and resilience of energy grids around the world, engineers and policymakers are increasingly turning their attention to energy storage solutions.
For this reason, the SAIEE launched the Energy Storage Chapter. Knowing that energy storage can help address the intermittency of solar and wind power; it can also, in many cases, respond rapidly to large fluctuations in demand, making the grid more responsive and reducing the need to build backup power plants.
