Southern African Coal Conference
Cape Town, South Africa • 31 January - 2 February 2024

Energy Security in a Changing World

South Africa could arguably be at the centre of one of the world’s biggest challenges: How to drastically reduce the burning of fossil fuels while keeping the lights on?

An unprecedented power crisis has forced South Africa’s government to rethink its Western-backed energy transition plans, acknowledging that coal is cheap, reliable, and plentiful. So why suffer today for an uncertain tomorrow?

To help unravel this conundrum, McCloskey is bringing together the region’s top government officials, industry leaders and experts as part of its 19th Annual Southern African Coal Conference to be held at Cape Town’s Westin Hotel.

Join your customers, competitors, and the industry at large for this much anticipated event to network and gain knowledge on not only the energy transition but also:

All of these high level sessions will be presented by CEOs and industry experts who’ll discuss and analyze the critical issues facing South Africa’s thermal coal industry and the challenges and opportunities on the horizon as the industry continues its mission to manage through the energy transition.

Join us and gain key insight and market intelligence while networking and developing new relationships with your current and future business partners and customers. Agenda details will soon be released.
