The Ghana Energy Awards initiative is widely recognized within the industry and aims to honour excellence and innovation in the country’s energy sector. It also seeks to acknowledge deserving individuals and organizations making significant contributions to various facets and industries within the sector.
Prior to the main event scheduled for November, the Awards Secretariat has planned several activities, including the announcement of nominees and site visitations to prospective nominees’ project sites to verify the accuracy of claims made by the nominees on the ground. This meticulous approach ensures that the GEA stands as one of the few award schemes that insist on field verification to ensure that the awards presented to industry players at the end of the review period are truly well-deserved.
