Bidco Africa takes top spot at the 14th Energy Management Awards

Bidco Africa is the overall winner of this year’s Energy Management Award.

The awards, themed ‘setting the pace in resource efficiency towards competitive local manufacturing’, awarded over 20 companies that have achieved significant reductions in their energy consumption through implementation of energy efficient measures and technologies.

Speaking during the event, Chief Administrative Secretary and Principal Secretary, Renewable Energy, Prof. Colleta Suda noted Government’s commitment in providing universal energy access as a means to build and spur social economic development.

We are all aware that energy is a significant enabler in achieving the Big 4 Agenda. The Government is committed to the provision of affordable, reliable, quality and sustainable power. This is evident in the various projects that various government agencies have embarked on such as the Boresha Viwandani Initiative by Kenya Power, the development of various transmission lines by KETRACO and the geothermal development being steered by KenGen,” added Prof. Suda.

KAM Chair Ms Flora Mutahi noted that Kenya is one of the countries in Africa that has shown commitment and leadership in embracing renewable energy.

As the first country in Africa to produce geothermal power at 200MW and a notable solar energy producer, we have the aptitude to lead in energy efficiency through sustainable approaches such as recycling and reusing of our waste,” added Ms. Mutahi.

Also present at the event was the Principal Secretary Energy, Dr. Joseph Njoroge who reiterated the role of Government in supporting the manufacturing sector with policy and regulatory frameworks to achieve the Big 4 Agenda.

The awards are geared at encouraging a culture of energy efficiency and conservation, and recognize enterprises that have made major and sustainable gains in energy efficiency through the application of modern energy management principles and practices, and in the process made significant energy and cost reductions.
