Are South Africans oblivious to the issues of Global Warming ?


South Africans are seen as totally oblivious to the issues of global warming, energy and food crisis. Given the urgency of the issue of climate change, recent research shows a totally different outlook.
Eskom’s ridiculous tariff increase and the upcoming international climate negotiations in Copenhagen this December, everything now is about renewable energies and energy efficiency; everybody is talking about saving the world and expressing support for finding a sustainable solution to the climate crises.
The public should be made aware of the range of solutions available to take advantage of the technologies that will contribute most effectively towards individual energy conservation and efficiency. We are not looking to sustain wasteful life styles and we will achieve this by educating and responsibly recommending the most appropriate solution.
South Africa could utilize these products, which would assist in reducing pressure on the state-owned power utility Eskom. The National Energy Regulator of South Africa is currently giving close consideration to the implementation of such schemes. The opportunity to sell power back to the grid adds a meaningful incentive for people to invest in alternative power systems on their properties.
 GREENEX2010, showcasing in Johannesburg, South Africa on 12-13th May 2010 and hosted bySAAEA  is the platform to discuss, view and exhibit new ideas and technologies for generating energy from natural and sustainable sources including (Wind, Solar, Hydro, Geothermal, Biofuel, Fuel Cell Technology, Energy Saving Devices and Eco Friendly Products).
New to Southern Africa is the extensive highlighting of Fuel Cell technology.
The Conference will focus on presentations by leading experts on sustainable energy solutions for today and the future of our continent.
Visitors will be able to get firsthand information on using renewable energy solutions to combat global warming and save on energy bills.
The Exhibition will provide an environment where exhibitors will have networking opportunities with role players across the continent, tapping into new markets and industries, as well as having their products, projects, services and solutions displayed
This is an excellent opportunity to exhibit your products, build relationships, business networking and expand your knowledge of Renewable energy.
The administrator of the Southern African Alternative Energy Association, Alwyn Smith, says the exhibition could not have come at a better time as products, systems and services on display will serve to assist business and consumers with solutions on how to reduce electricity costs including on how to survive on the new rates.
