Innovative power projects and initiatives recognised at the Asian Power Awards

Over 50 companies were awarded in this year’s Oscars of the power industry.

The Asian Power Awards is back for the 17th year to once again recognise ground-breaking projects and trailblazing initiatives in the power sector in Asia. Dubbed as the Oscars of the power industry, the Asian Power Awards is the sector’s most prestigious awards programme.

With the continuing climate crisis and growing demand for renewable energy, industries are shifting their focus on the development of a more sustainable business model. This paradigm shift has resulted in innovative solutions, and this year, the programme has awarded 54 outstanding power companies for their successful initiatives.

The esteemed panel of judges for this year’s nominations consisted of Mike Thomas, Partner at The Lantau Group; Wen Bin Lim, Director, Asia Pacific Renewable Sector Lead at KPMG Advisory; John Yeap, Partner at Pinsent Masons; Petteri Harkki at Regional Director for Asia at AFRY; and Gervasius Samosir, Partner at YCP Solidiance.

Awards presentations will be held virtually from 12 November 2021. 

Congratulations to the winners!
