Building on the success of FEDHASA’s ‘Talking Energy with FEDHASA’ events in Cape Town and Johannesburg earlier this year, the third event in the series is set to take place at Nedbank Park Square in Umhlanga Rocks on July 19.
The flooding and energy challenges have significantly impacted FEDHASA members in KwaZulu-Natal, underscoring the importance of this session in identifying sustainable solutions for their businesses.
In partnership with Nedbank, the event unites the hospitality industry, energy specialists, alternative energy providers, and funding experts to address the pressing challenge of the intensifying energy crisis in South Africa.
The primary focus is to explore viable solutions that ensure business survival in this challenging energy landscape and safeguard them for the future.
“The third ‘Talking Energy with FEDHASA’ event promises to be an empowering and inspiring day featuring panel discussions and sessions that will explore the future of the hospitality industry and provide practical advice and information on energy alternatives,” said Brett Tungay, FEDHASA East Coast Chairperson.
Attendees will hear from energy providers leading the charge against the energy crisis, including Nedbank economist, Liandra da Silva.
Moreover, they can engage with alternative energy providers and explore various options, all in interactive formats. Sustainable energy experts attending include Roger Hislop, Executive at Smart Energy, CBI Electric; Marshall Fourie, Utility Management Specialist at Energy Resource Optimizers ; and NuHome Africa and Hohm Energy representatives.
Tungay added: “Our primary objective for organising this third event is to tackle the energy crisis in the hospitality sector head-on by highlighting solutions. As the industry continues to recover while facing the devastating effects of the energy crisis and flooding, we must play a key role in driving transformative changes and presenting viable solutions for hospitality businesses in KwaZulu-Natal. Our event aims to inspire and lead the way in building a stronger and more sustainable future for the industry.”
