Energy Management Awards 2015

The Kenya Association of Manufacturers was at the Safari Park Hotel on 27th March for the 11th edition of the Energy Management Awards and the inaugural CEO’s Forum on Sustainable Energy.

The event themed “Celebrating Excellence in Sustainable Energy Management”, had the action agenda put in place to achieve the set goals in renewable energy resources efficiency and creating a conducive environment for investment while priority projects by stakeholders are proposed.

Mzuri Sweets won the overall energy Management Award sweeping 3 awards including Best New Entrants and Runners-up of the Fuel Oil Savings Awards.

The 1st Runners-up category went to BAT Nairobi and Kenafric, large Energy Consumers followed by Turtle Bay Beach Club for the 2nd Runners up. Isaac Kiunga a Masters student and Obiero Churchill a Graduate Students were also recognized in the energy management Awards not forgetting the recognition of EMA pioneers Ms. Mary Gathoni Kiema and Andrew Yager.

Efficiency in energy use is central to reducing the cost of production and improving competitive edge of Kenyan goods in the regional and global market. Technology cost to capture energy is rapidly falling and becoming economically competitive, while reducing the risk of climate change.

“It is estimated that at least 30% of energy is wasted in electricity hence manufacturers should promote energy efficiency by identifying how to make efficient management and renewable energy investments”. Said Ms. Betty Maina, Chief Executive, Kenya Association of Manufacturers.

At the function, the French Ambassador to Kenya H.E. Rémi Maréchaux concluded that unions in private sectors need to mobilize and build new technologies to the growth of business. Investing in renewable energy creates jobs, fosters economic growth and improves energy security for countries that lack domestic fossil fuel resources.

Bob Collymore, Chief Executive Officer Safaricom mentioned that access to reliable energy is critical in every environment because it is a vital component and so business persons need to coup his/her equipment by putting in place aggressive measures to enhance energy.

In addition, there is need to reduce recycled waste to recover valuable materials and embrace sustainable energy generation through potential energy development.
