South African Green Hour celebrates a year on radio

The Green Hour radio program, an initiative of the Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE) and Kingfisher FM in Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB), celebrates its first anniversary after producing 44 energy efficiency and sustainability awareness shows.
Launched on the 4th of July last year, the SAEE joined forces with Gareth Burley, a radio presenter on Kingfisher FM to start a national conversation about energy efficiency. The community in NMB have been privileged to hear live studio interviews from various prestigious personalities within the energy industry like Lisa Reynolds representing the SABS who discussed the latest building standards, Dr Braam Dalgleish on the National Energy Barometer Survey, CMG motors explaining what energy efficiency motors can mean to ensure sustainable savings, explaining the results of the Eskom CFL roll-out programme with Dr Michael Simon from Fort Hare University, Kobus Krog speaking on the benefits he received from attending the Energy Training Foundation’s Fundamentals for Energy Management Training (FEMT) course, award-winning energy efficiency housing with Moladi construction and cleaner production methods with Alf Hartzenberg from NCPC-SA.

Gareth presents the lunch show weekdays on Kingfisher FM, and Green Hour on Mondays from 1-2pm with live streaming on In addition, daily energy news is broadcast at 1:30pm and newsfeeds and Green Hour audio clips can be found by visiting the SAEE’s Green Hour blog. During the past year inroads have been made on the social media networks through the Green Hour Facebook group ‘The Green Hour – Kingfisher FM’ which has received over 34 000 friends and likes, and over 140 000 friends and tweets with Twitter at ‘GreenHourSA’.
