This one-day PASA category event will take an in depth look at the state of the art in 2021 for ENERGY procurement and its main issues Post-Covid and, in particular, address the three BIG questions facing corporate ENERGY buyers in 2021:
How do we mitigate the rising costs of energy for our business operations?
What alternative energy sources should we be considering, including renewable energy sources?
What should our emissions goals be and how can we achieve them within a reasonable timeframe?
The PASA one day ENERGY category event will explore answers to these questions

The procurement of energy is becoming a critical category for many organisations – no longer just those who brand energy costs as DIRECT, such as those with high energy needs in a manufacturing process.
Even INDIRECT buyers with relatively lower needs are concerned with the rising cost of energy. Indeed, what, exactly, should your energy costs actually be?
Moreover, a wider range of stakeholders are growing increasingly concerned over energy choices. Not just from a regulatory point of view, but also from a consumers point of view – forcing organisations both public and private to address their own energy policy.
At the centre of these concerns are emissions, as well as costs, and on occasion assurance over supply. Political concerns, questions and balances add a further dimension for many.
This ENERGY DAY programme works from a corporate perspective and is targeted at B2B buyers of energy.
- Contributors include leading energy category purchasing consultants like Energy Action, our Platinum sponsor, as well as other industry experts such as The Renewable Energy Hub and Beam Solar.
- A highly relevant CASE STUDIES from SA WATER will illuminate corporate energy policy in practice – particularly the pursuit of achieving a ZERO Cost Energy future.
