Johan Pienaar

As an Energy Management Systems Expert (EnMS-UNIDO) and Certified Energy Manager (CEM-Association of Energy Engineers), he has gained valuable experience in both renewable energy and energy efficiency systems. Johan is a strategic thinker and visionary, his key strength is being always cognisant of the practical overcoming of key energy engineering and environmental challenges.

His fifteen years of exposure to practical engineering and project development equipped him with a unique skill set to translate innovative ideas into practical workable solutions.
