Workshop: Prevention and mitigation of solar PV related fires

  • Component defects, system design and faulty installation are just some of the causes for a solar rooftop system catching fire.
  • We sometimes forget that a solar PV system is an electrical system.
  • Like all electrical systems, if they are not installed properly, they can cause a fire.
  • While solar PV rooftop fires are very uncommon, there are certain compliance requirement and safety standards that must be adhered to prevent the possibility of a fire occurring.

The South African Energy Efficiency Confederation invites solar PV installers, IPP’s, EPC’s, homeowners and business owners to attend a workshop addressing this very important topic. Taking place virtually on 15 August 2023 from 10am to 12pm.

About South African Energy Efficiency Confederation (SAEEC)

The SAEEC shares the position that only effort made in development towards the right direction can lead to progress. The confederation is therefore designed such that we link our members to development initiatives that are aligned to international best practices. These range from seminars, training, lectures, site visits, discussions, regulatory updates, and our annual conference where we showcase projects that are leading the way for sustainable development that are arranged either through ourselves or our various interest groups and associations.

The SAEEC is also aligned to international best practice through our affiliation with Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), a non-profit global authority established in 1977 to promote the scientific and educational interests of those engaged in the energy industry and to foster action for sustainable development in the field of energy efficiency. We are a proud chapter of the AEE and this integrates our members to a professional society of over 18,000 members in more than 100 countries and over 33,000 Certified Professionals. The international certifications can be accessed through our partnership with the Institute of Energy Professionals Africa (IEPA), who offer a variety of recognised programmes in Energy efficiency for Sub-Saharan Africa as the local certification administrators for AEE.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
