Find out who reigned at the Asian Power Awards 2020

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

The most outstanding companies with ground-breaking projects and trailblazing initiatives in Asia’s power sector were recognised at the 16th Asian Power Awards, held digitally from 27 October to 3 November 2020.

This year’s nominations were judged by an elite panel of judges consisting of Mike Thomas, Partner at The Lantau Group; Wen Bin Lim, Director, Power and Utilities 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.

"The spread of COVID-19 has greatly affected multiple industries. However, the pandemic also provided the power sector with opportunities to innovate and successfully launch projects which will help them reach more consumers," said Asian Power publisher Tim Charlton. “The Asian Power Awards aims to recognise these projects which helped the community amidst these tough times.”
