Africa's leading utility and energy professionals and projects are to be honoured at the annual African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa that is taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on 13 and14 May.
Designed to celebrate the African triumphs and successes of the industry throughout 2013, the industry will be able to nominate candidates for nine award categories.
The awards evening, attended by some 500 leading executives from across the power, water, renewable energy, finance and investment spheres, is a long overdue addition to what is the largest utility gathering of its kind on the continent. African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa is attended by more than 5,000 power and water professionals from more than 30 African countries and 70 worldwide.
"These are exciting and sometimes 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 Africa", says Russell Hughes, event director.
"This is the African utility industry celebrating its heroes and success stories. It is for the industry and by the industry. We invite all power professionals on the continent 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 Africa."
