Carel Snyman

Director, Carel Snyman Consulting
South Africa

Carel’s involvement in energy started in 1988, when he joined the National Energy Council (NEC) – a governmental energy forum, funding related research and assisting government with the development of energy policy. He chaired various steering committees (Removing lead from petrol, optimising octane levels for petrol in South Africa, researching alternatives to petroleum, etc.) in collaboration with the automotive and oil industries. Most of his work focused on alternative transport energy and this led to the start of a programme to evaluate electric vehicle technologies and its application in South Africa.
