The 19th edition of EMA was themed “Towards a Low Carbon Future: Energy Conservation and Efficiency Conservations,” and BAT Kenya was the runner-up.
During the awards ceremony, the Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Energy and Petroleum Davis Chirchir, emphasized the importance of energy in the country’s socio-economic prosperity and called for its responsible production and consumption.
“Energy is directly linked to a nation’s economic prosperity as it drives all aspects in our society, from manufacturing, health, education, agriculture, transport and logistics and even at home. Even as we enhance access to energy, it is paramount that we put in place measures to ensure that it is within consumers’ reach.
It is our responsibility, as Government to stabilize the cost of power. We have listened to your concerns, as manufacturers, and are working to resolve this challenge. Our collaboration goes a long way back, and through it, we hope to reach more industries, public institutions, and commercial buildings in advancing the energy efficiency agenda.”
Rajan Shah, KAM Chairman, celebrated local manufacturers for embracing sustainable production.
“The total electrical energy savings realized by participants of the 19th Energy Management Awards was 92,453 GJ (25,681,389 kWh) for the projects implemented.”
“This is able to power 71,337 DC lifeline households per annum and is also equivalent to a 4 MW plant. This demonstrates the manufacturing sector’s unwavering commitment to supporting the realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
