New status for Energy Research Centre

08 March 2010

In the latest Energy Management News there is an article on UCT's Energy Research Centre (ERC) being selected as the Regional Designated Centre in energy planning.

It reads: "The ERC has been selected as the African Regional Co-Operative Agreement for Research, Development and Training related to Nuclear Science and Technology (AFRA) Regional Designated Centre in the field of energy planning."

This follows a process that has taken over a year, and which included a visit to the ERC last year by a two-man evaluation team.

As a Regional Designated Centre, the ERC will help the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) provide training to African energy planners, and provide general energy planning support to the AFRA member states (most African countries). Among other things, this means there will be money to train African energy planners, and the IAEA will pay the costs.
