The West African Power Industry Awards are designed to celebrate the West African triumphs and successes of the industry during the last year and the industry will be able to nominate candidates in seven award categories, ranging from Lifetime Achievement Award to Outstanding Woman in Power. The winners will be honoured at a five-star gala event during WAPIC.

WAPIC’s programme director Irene Ochem: “to celebrate the success and the loyalty of our event participants during the past 11 years, we are proud to launch the awards, recognising excellence within the power sector and rewarding companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the industry.”

High-level list of expert speakers
Well-known global business leader, financier, entrepreneur, investment guru and philanthropist Tony Elumelu is heading up the high-level list of power experts who will address this year’s WAPIC. During the 11th edition of this long running conference and expo, WAPIC will once again gather government, utilities, consultants and investors to discuss the challenges of local markets, capacity building and investment.

The awards evening, attended by some 500 leading executives from across the power, renewable energy, finance and investment spheres, is considered a long overdue addition to what is the leading utility gathering of its kind in the region.

Utility industry celebrating its heroes
“These are exciting and often pioneering times for the utility industry and we feel honoured to be able to recognise utilities, utility leaders, companies and individuals who are making an enormous difference in the development of the energy landscape in West Africa”, says Irene Ochem.

She adds: ”this is the West African utility industry celebrating its heroes and success stories. It is for the industry and by the industry. We invite all power professionals in the region to send us their nominations and we look forward to sharing their triumphs with their peers. Together we will highlight those companies and executives who have been responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, for inspiring others and for achieving growth for West Africa.”
