Finalists announced for East Africa Power Awards
Among other nominees are former Kenyan Permanent Secretary for Energy and Petroleum, Patrick Nyoike, the Ugandan Minister of Energy and Mineral Development, Irene Nafuna-Muloni, the Turkana Lake Wind Project in Kenya and Rwanda’s Agahozo Shalom Youth Village.
This year’s East African Power Industry Awards will take place during the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) on August 27 in Nairobi.
The awards, which celebrate the region’s successes in 2014/2015, were announced in seven award categories ranging from Power Transaction of the Year, Clean Energy Project of the Year to the category of Outstanding Woman in Power.
Nafuna-Muloni scored a double nod from the judges with nominations in two categories, namely Lifetime Achievement Award and Outstanding Woman in Power.
The panel of independent judges comprises accomplished industry experts.
“We are very proud to be able to honour the outstanding power professionals and projects in the East African region and I think the list of excellent finalists speaks for itself,” says Natalie Bacon, Programme Director of EAPIC.
“The individuals and projects represent those companies and executives who have been responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, inspiring others and achieving growth in turbulent and challenging markets.”
The 17th edition of EAPIC is expected to gather some 1 200 visitors this year, including from the region’s leading power utilities, large industries and investors as well as technology and service providers who will showcase their products on the exhibition.
EAPIC and the East African Power Industry Awards are organised by Spintelligent, leading Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, and the African office of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the UK.
