Windaba Once Again Impressed in October 2019
If you missed the ninth annual Windaba conference hosted in Cape Town at the start of October, don’t despair. You will get another chance to visit the premier international wind energy event next year. This year’s conference was hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from the 8th to the 9th of October.
Windaba is the leading power and wind energy event in the country and worth attending if you are interested or operate within the renewable energy sector.
Windaba October 2019 was made possible by the South African Wind Energy Association and the Global Wind Energy Council. Influencers and many government representatives attended. Important decision-makers and numerous stakeholders participated in the discussions about the future of wind energy supply in Africa.
As many as 500+ exhibitors displayed their products and brand messages. With the visitors to Windaba already in the market for renewable energy products, exhibitors benefited from having their target audiences right at their booth entrances.
With the conference in its ninth year, it has become almost a household name in the wind energy circles. Several top delegates attended to support the focus on creating sustainable energy sources for the people of Africa. The Minister of Mineral and Energy Resources, Gwede Mantashe, also attended this year’s Windaba.
Among the delegates to this year’s Windaba were OEMs, investors, and bank representatives, as well as insurers.
Minister Gwede Mantashe was one of the key speakers at the conference. He noted that conventional electricity supply is too expensive, thereby verbalising what is on the minds of many South Africans. In his address, Minister Mantashe noted the importance of wind power for energy creation. With government also showing interest in wind energy supply, it is certainly good news for service providers and inventors hoping to promote wind energy in Africa.

The next Windaba event will be hosted in October 2020. If you missed out on the opportunity to have a display stand at the premier wind energy event this year, book your spot early for next year.

Still on the topic of energy sources, the Africa Oil Week is just around the corner.
