South Africa: SANERI to fund energy research at SA universities

The South African National Energy Research Institute (Sanri) plans to spend at least R8-million a year, over the next three to five years, to establish energy research chairs at South African universities.
This is to support its prioritised research for 2007/8, which would examine cleaner fuels for household energy provision, energy efficiency, fuel-cell development and hydrogen economy, it said in a recent advertisement.

Saneri, a State-funded private company owned by the Central Energy Fund, reported that it would spend R2-million a year on four grants to establish the chairs, as the Departments of Science and Technology and Minerals and Energy had tasked it to initiate human capital development programmes.

Moreover, it stated that these grants would be renewable after the stipulated period and that additional funding of up to R500 000 yearly would be made available for bursaries for Masters and Doctoral studies.
