Smart Grid South Africa: A U.S. - South Africa Workshop

Dates: October 2526, 2011

Locations: Johannesburg, South Africa

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency is sponsoring a workshop to highlight U.S. smart grid technologies with attending South African electric power stakeholders. The event will review lessons learned and current best practices in the United States related to smart grid technologies, legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks, and financing mechanisms that will support South Africa's initiative to implement current and planned smart grid projects.

A follow up reverse trade mission to the U.S. for South African delegates – decision makers and stakeholders -- will take place in early 2012.

MFM Lamey Group is organizing the workshop and reverse trade mission.
