As indicated SASGI is an electricity industry representative institute. This is an institute established by the industry through the guidance of SANEDI. The common objective of the members is to address the industry priorities and challenges in respect of Smart Grids and grid modernisation in South Africa. Municipalities are represented through a number of representative municipalities and the South African Local Government Association (SALGA). Due to the diversity of Eskom, representation from the Smart Grid related disciplines within Eskom are secured.
