Solar Show Africa 2020

The year 2020 has proved to be a very special and different year, with that said, it meant we had to adjust to the new reality. That meant making a few changes to how business is conducted. This year the Solar Show Africa 2020 was also different as it was a free-to-attend virtual conference and exhibition for the entire energy community. GREEN was also exhibiting and it was great e-meeting everyone and making new contacts.

For Tsakani Mashila our Junior Marketing Manager, this was her first time attending the Solar Show and this is what she had to say about her experience:

“ The Solar Show was a great experience, as I had the opportunity to network and connect with new people and getting to know more about the Solar PV industry”.

My biggest take from the Show was that you learn something new every day and you can never learn enough. The cool part of it all was that attending the Show was FREE and everything was done at the comfort of your home or office.

Amanda Dzivhani our Customer Relations Manager who has attended the actual Solar Show she found that this year’s show was great because one could actually schedule meetings and attend them on time. And from those meetings great and new partnerships were formed.

One of the partnerships the Show brought us was with RenewSys. RenewSys is the renewable energy arm of the ENPEE Group, a diversified global conglomerate with a heritage of nearly 60 years of manufacturing excellence. They will be supplying us with training equipment for our new academy in Port Elizabeth with Genergy.

One of our Directors Antje Klauss-Vorriete was part of a panel together with Thomo Megan Lekagane
and Marielle Fillit on the topic: On-Grid, Off-grid, or Hybrid which solar system is the best for you?  All the panelists agreed on the same approach to what the best system is and that is:

“A system with proper design, which meets the requirements of the costumers and is installed by an experience, preferably certified installer”

The Solar Show 2020 was quite a success as we were able to make contact with old friends and partners, also having talks with old partners, and renewing old contacts. We looking forward to next year’s Solar Show, we can’t wait to see what the Show will be like.
