With global energy demands on the increase, coupled with the depletion
of our natural resources and the negative impact of fossil-based energy
sources on the environment, the issues of clean, sustainable energy
and the importance thereof in economic development and global
wellbeing have become a pressing reality world-wide.
and the efficient use of energy are two key components
of mitigating these challenges. It is for this reason the
South African National Energy Development Institute
(SANEDI) was established.

SANEDI/SACCCS Mentee Scoops the Beijing International Award
Mandisa Xaba from Sakhwele Secondary School at eZakheni, KZN hoisted the South African Flag by winning the Gold Medal in Beijing on 26 March 2017 for her project titled: “Production of Heat Energy from CO2 Emissions: The Effect of Forces on the Chemical Composition and Thermal Behaviour of CO2 (The Mathematical Study) focused on converting carbon dioxide (CO2) from vehicles and power industries into heat energy.
Mandisa was discovered by the Stakeholder Engagement Team in September 2016 and in October 2016 she won the Carbon Capture & Storage Special Award of the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists International Science Fair.
Rofhiwa Raselavhe and Wiseman Ngcobo have been mentoring Mandisa in preparation for the 2017 Beijing Youth Creation Competition. The CCS Category was introduced in the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists to popularise the technology amongst the learners and the Educators alike. In tandem with the Eskom Expo, SANEDI’s Pilot Schools Project initiative aims at identifying and unleashing innovation amongst the young people, whilst at the same time demystifying the myth around Maths, Science & Technology.
Congratulations are in order for Mandisa, our Scientist in the making. She has demonstrated against all odds that one’s attitude determines one’s altitude. Coming from the rural area with lack of educational amenities did not deter Mandisa from pressing on. SANEDI is proud of Mandisa for setting a precedence in the rural area. Mr Kevin Nassiep, the CEO committed at Bhambanani in the KZN at the handing over ceremony of the Science Tool Kits held on 23 March 2017 that SANEDI will continue to support the Schools’ initiatives.
