Southern African Coal Conference
"Managing through the Energy Transition"
Cape Town, South Africa • 4-6 May 2022

Now in its 17th year, the Southern African Coal Conference returns in person to Cape Town, South Africa on 4-6 of May 2022. The event brings together an unparalleled line-up of top governmental officials, CEOs and industry experts who will discuss the largest issues facing South Africa’s thermal coal industry and the challenges and opportunities on the horizon as the industries continues its mission of “Managing through the Energy Transition.”

South African thermal coal prices have skyrocketed to unprecedented heights this year due to geopolitical conflicts, rising European demand and tight global supplies. However, producers continue to struggle with systemic rail issues, leaving stockpiles at the Richards Bay Coal Terminal well below optimum levels. This is making it difficult for exporters to take full advantage of surging demand from Europe and China, while also protecting market share in India and Pakistan.

On the domestic side, all eyes will be on Eskom this year and how it will make use of the $8.5 billion pledged by Western nations to accelerate the country’s transition away from coal. Donors are already hoping South Africa’s energy transition will be a template for the rest of the world.

Join us and gain key insight and market intelligence into these and many more issues, while also networking and developing new relationships with your current and future business partners and customers.
