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.

“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, taking place at the KICC from 27-28 August. She adds: “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.”

Panel of judges
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

• 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.

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.
