Asian Power & Energy Innovation Awards
Asian Power & Energy Innovation Awards celebrates successful innovators across the Asian energy sector. The Awards recognise excellence on the part of those planning and implementing projects that significantly improve business practices across the key themes of our expo series.
Benefits of Nominating
Award winners get bragging rights for 12 months. You can feature the Award on your marketing collateral. This is especially useful to vendors entering new markets. But it’s also valuable to utilities and IPP who seek recognition for developing new valued programs. We encourage lots of nominations from the market. This can be from vendors, utilities, IPPs, C&I customers or indeed any group that has developed successful technology and business innovations.
You can nominate your own business and you can nominate a project across a number of categories. The only requirement is that the project be based in the Asian region.
The award categories are deliberately broad to capture a wide variety of projects. Interpret them as you see fit with a focus on projects that are ‘best of breed’ by virtue of their value to the stakeholders and industry. We acknowledge that most of the categories will involve digital strategies. There are normally many partners involved in energy projects so list those who are relevant to your project.
Here are the award categories:
