The African Power and Energy Elite publication and the African Power, Energy & Water Industry Awards have combined for their 2020 editions with a single nomination and selection process across a set of complementary categories.
The coveted African Power, Energy & Water Industry awards has been taken place for the past six years, during the African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa conference and exhibition, in Cape Town. The prestigious African Power & Energy Elites Publication celebrates leadership and successful projects in the sector since 2016.
The two combined to host an award programme, known as the African Power & Energy Elites and offer even more benefits, recognition and exposure for the finalists and winners. This is apart from the high quality publication and glamorous awards evening. Some of the benefits available for finalists and winners includes access to, and speaking opportunities at leading energy events on the continent and a VIP tour of Cape Town and surrounds and an on-camera interview at the awards evening, amongst others.
In a collaborative effort, the African Power & Energy Elites and the African Power, Energy and Water Industry Awards will align with a single nomination and selection process across a set of complementary categories.
