As the representative voices of the solar PV and Wind industries, SAPVIA and SAWEA are constantly working towards collaborating with stakeholders across the renewable energy sector to share knowledge and drive effective change.
They will present a six-part “Developing the local RE value chain” webinar, to expose the public to business opportunities that exist within the renewable value chain. The renewable energy industry takes particular interest in developing local businesses which could supply products and services to accelerate the localisation potential of this industry. Your organization is invited to support the vision to develop South Africa’s local businesses in order maximise its localisation impact while building local competence of global standard.
Developing developers webinar series 2 – May to October 2021

19 August: Opportunities in transportation and logistics
As renewable energy market grows in South Africa, it will increase business prospects for transportation and logistics companies in South Africa’s renewable energy cargo can be bulky and in the majority of cases requires door-to-door transportation of a large number of containers from one continent to another or urgent air freight delivery. This requires efficient handling at all stages of the project: collection; warehousing; delivery to site etc, meaning that most cases require specialist project cargo handling.
