Energy Efficiency marketplace to help local companies

Cape Town’s Energy Efficiency Forum is putting on an energy efficiency marketplace on Thursday 10 November 2011 to help owners and managers of commercial and public buildings – including hotels and guesthouses, meeting venues, restaurants and others in the tourism and hospitality sector – learn about and see for themselves various products, technologies and services that can help them reduce their electricity usage and save money. Meet the service providers, see the products in use, compare brands and companies, and ask your questions at no cost and no obligation. It’s a practical way to take the next step in energy efficiency and help address one of our local priority issues in responsible tourism here in Cape Town.

Businesses in Cape Town are invited to attend the next meeting of the Energy Efficiency Forum, which is a Marketplace of services and suppliers in the energy efficiency sector. The Forum aims to provide owners or managers of offices, shopping centres and hotels with practical ‘know how’ on how to implement energy efficiency improvements in their own buildings and to create a platform for collective action and shared learning. The venue of the Market Place Forum will be at the Old Mutual head office in Pinelands, and credible suppliers of energy efficiency goods and services will be given the opportunity to showcase their products and services to commercial building managers.

Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else to whom it may be of interest.
