The DUT Energy Technology Station known as “ KZN Industrial Energy Efficient Training and
Resource Centre (IEETR), is based in the Physics Unit at the Durban University of Technology (DUT) and is established as one of many technology stations based within South African Universities. The energy technology station was created in July 2012 and is funded by TIA (Technology Innovation Agency) to respond to the need for awareness, innovation, development, empowerment, research and technology, and provide subsidized services in energy efficiency and energy projects within KZN. A key focus area of the technology station is to assist SME’s, commercial, residential and industrial sectors in the field of energy. It has identified energy efficiency conservation and management as an area where we can assist the above sectors in reducing reducing their energy consumption as well as renewable energy solutions.
