Dubai, February 2, 2014
The Middle East Electricity Awards has announced the shortlist of 19 projects from 115 submissions across eight categories will contest for the ultimate accolade at an event in Dubai next month.
The awards programme is a regular feature of the Middle East Electricity exhibition, which takes place from February 11 to 13 at Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre. The programme has this year introduced the Young Engineer of the Year Award, identifying young, enthusiastic engineers that make a positive contribution to the future growth of the energy sector.
Other new categories added for the 2014 edition include the Best Marketing Campaign, and Best Product Launch at Middle East Electricity 2014, which will highlight the latest cutting edge technologies from thousands of new products being introduced by more than 1,250 international exhibitors at the three-day trade show.
The Green Champion of the Year Special Award wraps up the new categories this year, recognising an individual who has made a significant and long-term contribution to implementing green initiatives within their organisation in the Middle East.
“The quality and quantity of submissions for the Middle East Electricity Awards 2014 has surpassed submissions in all previous editions of the awards programme,” said Anita Mathews, director of Informa Energy Group, organisers of Middle East Electricity.
“We are delighted to present a prestigious platform where organisations and individuals can celebrate with industry peers in contributing to the growth and development of what is one of the most exciting energy sectors in the world.
