About Sanedi

welcome to SANEDI

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 well-being have become a pressing reality world-wide. Energy innovation and the efficient use of energy are two key components of mitigating these challenges. It is for this reason the South African Government has established the institute.

The South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) is a Schedule 3A state owned entity that was established as a successor to the previously created South African National Energy Research Institute (SANERI) and the National Energy Efficiency Agency (NEEA). The main function of SANEDI is to direct, monitor and conduct applied energy research and development, demonstration and deployment as well to undertake specific measures to promote the uptake of Green Energy and Energy Efficiency in South Africa.

In terms of SANEDI’s mandate, there are 2 key programmes namely:

1. Applied Energy Research
