The Energy Intensive Users Group of Southern Africa (“EIUG”) was established in 1999 as a voluntary, non-profit association. It was incorporated as a Non-Profit Company in 2019. The group was founded on the belief that energy is the engine for economic growth and development in the country. Our members currently account for over 40% of the electrical energy consumed and collectively contribute to 22% of the South African GDP.
We are a customer-led advocacy organization dedicated to serving our members interests by influencing energy, just energy transition and climate change policy within our country. The vision of the EIUG is to be a trusted champion for energy reliability, affordability and sustainability to our stakeholders.
