Organisation / Company

Enel Green Power, South Africa


Ntitiseng Moloi, 30, is a project engineer at Enel Green Power, South Africa. She manages engineering activities for wind and solar energy projects. This includes collaboration with stakeholders, contractors and consultants, equipment manufacturers as well as Eskom, to guarantee that projects conform to technical standards and the power utility’s regulations. Her responsibilities include coordinating the engineering team and working closely with other organisational units to provide technical input for business cases and manage the overall planning and execution of design activities. Ntitiseng also oversees external engineering services contracts. In addition, she analyses design modifications and handles non-conformities during construction and commissioning. A major challenge Ntitiseng faced was her battle with imposter syndrome, resulting in her trying to validate her ability on her own. She overcame this by acknowledging the power in seeking support from peers and mentors. Ntitiseng was chosen by the International Electrotechnical Committee (South Africa) to represent the country in the Young Professional Programme.

In 2019, I had the honour of being chosen by the International Electrotechnical Committee National Committee of South Africa to represent the country in the IEC Young Professionals Programme. The IEC is a global standardisation body tasked with developing international standards for electrical, electronic and related technologies. After my participation in the general meeting held in China, I collaborated with three other IEC young professionals from Australia, Finland and Italy on a global project. Together, we spearheaded the project titled “Finding the Missing Puzzles,” aimed at establishing IEC Young Professional programmes in other African countries. This stemmed from the observation of a minimal African presence at the general meeting. We successfully implemented IEC Young Professional programmes in Uganda, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. This initiative exposed numerous young African engineers to the standardisation body, enabling them to integrate into the global network in subsequent years.
This experience taught me the invaluable lesson of the importance of inclusivity and collaboration in fostering professional development and enhancing global participation in standardisation efforts.


I strongly believe in the power of mentorship, and I am fortunate to work in a sector where a number of inspirational women are experts. Throughout my career, I’ve had the chance to connect with and learn from these incredible individuals. My journey has been greatly influenced by the expertise and drive of women leaders in the renewable energy sector. I’ve also benefited from mentors through various leadership programmes, with each mentor leaving me with a fresh perspective and new goals to pursue.
