Nominations for the Oscars of the power industry reached a record-high of 200.
Over a hundred (138) senior executives and prime industry figures flocked to Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 4 September for the awards night of the Asian Power Awards 2019 in Malaysia. The number of nominations jumped to a record-high of 200.
The awards were expertly judged by John Yeap, Partner, head of Energy – Asia at Pinsent Masons; Mike Thomas, Partner at The Lantau Group; Petteri Harkki, Regional Director for Asia of Poyry; Wen Bin Lim, Director of Power and Utilities at KPMG; and Gervasius Samosir, Partner at YCP Solidiance.
Asian Power publisher Tim Charlton deeply congratulated the awardees, saying, "It's a great pleasure to see so many people here tonight at the 15th year of the Asian Power Awards. This year is our biggest year in terms of number of nominations. It’s good to see that this region, which is often given a bad rep for too much coal is actually doing the most in the world in terms of renewables."
