Ian Ernest Lane Hall of Fame



18 November 2015

The “SAEE Hall of Fame” was established in August 2009, by the SAEE Board and the Hall of Fame committee. On 12 November 2009, the late Dr. Ian Ernest Lane was bestowed the first SAEE Hall of Fame honour.

The Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE) Awards Programme annually recognises outstanding accomplishments of individuals and companies in the energy industry. The Awards are a token of recognition for the commitment to the profession; desire to further the association's mission, and participation in civic and community affairs. These prestigious Awards were presented at the Annual SAEE Banquet and Awards Ceremony on 11 November 2015 at Emperors Palace, Johannesburg.  The event also marked the official opening of the SAEE’s annual flagship event, the Southern African Energy Efficiency Convention (2015SAEEC).
