AFRICA’s top utility projects and power professionals will be honoured at the African Utility Week in May.
The event scheduled for Cape Town, South Africa, will bring together more than 5 000 power professionals from Africa’s leading utility, energy and water companies.
Designed to celebrate the African triumphs and successes of the industry throughout 2014, the industry will be able to nominate candidates for ten award categories in the African Utility Week Industry Awards on 13 May, ranging from Utility Executive to Clean Energy Project of the Year and the new category of Outstanding Woman in PowerWater.
“It is gratifying to see how much excitement these awards have created in the industry,” says African Utility Week event director Evan Schiff.
“Last year, the sold-out, inaugural African Utility Week Industry Awards were the hot ticket of the event and a huge success.
“Needless to say, there is a lot of interest again from the utility sector to enter for the awards and to attend.”
The panel of judges that will decide on the winners includes Brian Dames, former Eskom CEO, Musara Beta, Chief Market Analyst, Southern African Power Pool (SAPP), Zimbabwe and Peter Mtonda, Director of Distribution amp Customer Services, ESCOM, Malawi.
Some 500 leading executives from across the power, water, renewable energy, finance and investment spheres attended last year’s awards evening.
“We remain an event for the industry and by the industry,” said Schiff.
