NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – THE region’s leading projects, individuals and companies in the sector will be honoured at the inaugural East African Power Industry Awards organised as part of the upcoming East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC).

The convention is scheduled for August 27-28 in Nairobi, Kenya.

“We regard these awards as long overdue as it is high time that the outstanding power professionals and projects in the East African region are recognised and honoured,” says Natalie Bacon, Programme Director of EAPIC.

“The seven awards categories will highlight those companies and
executives who have been responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, inspiring others and achieving growth in turbulent and challenging markets.”

Celebrating the region’s triumphs and successes in 2014/2015, the
industry is able to nominate candidates for seven award categories in the awards, ranging from Power Transaction of the Year, Clean Energy Project of the Year to the category of Outstanding Woman in Power.

An accomplished list of industry experts has agreed to form a panel of independent judges that will decide on the winners.

These include Arlete Sando (Electricidade de Moçambique, Mozambique), Brian Mushimba (Eskom, Uganda), Caroline Kimathi, (Electricity Regulatory Commission, Kenya), Charles Muchunku (KEREA, Kenya), David Otwoma, (National Commission for Science Technology and Innovation, Ministry of Education, Kenya).

Others are Emma Kiilu (Electricity Regulatory Commission, Kenya),
Gordon Molefe (Botswana Power Corporation), Hindpal Jabal (Energy
Regulatory Commission, Kenya) and Florence Nsubuga (UMEME, Uganda), who made history in May this year by becoming the inaugural winner of the Woman in Power Award at African Utility Week in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Kenyan utility, KenGen, also won two awards at African Utility Week, namely Power Utility of the Year as well as Clean Power Project of the Year, and will be hot favourites to beat in the East African competition.

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 United Kingdom.
