The programme includes a business trend presentation on Energy Futures from Dion Chang (Founder of Flux Trends), two case studies from the Western Cape, and the launch of the Energy Efficiency Guide for the SA Wine Industry. The PSEE is funded by the UK Department for International Development and supported by the national Department of Energy.
