The Energy Training Foundation (EnTF)
supports the SAEE’s drive to encourage women to enter the energy efficiency industry by contributing towards a full SAEE bursary.
The technical and engineering fraternity is still very much male dominated terrain – the EnTF believes the energy efficiency career options offer many suitable career options to technically orientated women. “As our office is mostly women dominated, with all of us having a passion for the industry, it is a natural inkling to want to support more women to join us in changing perceptions around energy savings and being sustainable,” says Izelle Bosman, Training Manager of the EnTF, the training division of Energy Cybernetics, an EOH company.
The EnTF is the sole training partner in the Southern Africa Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE)
to present Certification qualification courses for Measurement & Verification Professionals (CMVP) under license from EVO, Energy Managers (CEM), Energy Auditors (CEA), Carbon Reduction Managers (CRM), and Renewable Energy Professionals (REP).
“This is a uniquely exciting time in the energy industry, as it is poised to face a multitude of opportunities and challenges in the coming decades, and women are particularly well suited to address these.
"The SAEE continues to promote the role of professional women in the South African energy industry and to support the professional development of women into corporate positions and boards, and we are pleased with contributions made towards making this happen” commented Karel Steyn, President of the Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency.
The bursary will be awarded at the SAEE Banquet on 11 November 2015 at Emperors Palace for the 2016 year of study. The SAEE bursary criteria
applies to all applicants.
