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 are just some of the well known names that made the shortlist in this year’s awards that will take place during the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) on 27 August in Nairobi. Prominent Kenyan actor and media personality Chris Okinda will be the MC during the awards gala dinner.

The finalists, which celebrate the region’s triumphs and successes in 2014/2015, were announced this week 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.
