About

Hosted by the Mpumalanga Provincial Government, in partnership with the Mpumalanga Green Cluster Agency.


The Premier of Mpumalanga Province has the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the Mpumalanga Energy Summit which will take place at The Ridge Hotel in eMalahleni, from 24 to 25 May 2022.


As the hub of coal fired electricity generation in South Africa, Mpumalanga is faced with socio-economic and environmental challenges arising from resource-intensive economic activities. The current pattern of development and growth in the province impacts negatively on natural capital and marginalised communities and presents risks for future generations. Given this context, it is imperative for the province to transition from the business-as-usual approach and embrace low-carbon, resource efficient, and socially inclusive economic growth in line with the National Development Plan.


It is against this context that the province will be hosting the Mpumalanga Energy summit under the theme “Embracing Just Transition and seizing opportunities related to energy”.
