KAM’s Holds the 13th Energy Management Awards

Kenya Association of Manufacturers recognized over 20 organizations that have proved their prowess in energy efficiency and conservation at the 13th Annual Energy Management Awards (EMA) Gala Dinner held on 31st March 2017.

UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Kenya Representative, Mr. Siddharth Chatterjee said that industry is one of the most important pillars of economic and social development and it is therefore important to support and encourage energy management.

“Organizations that have policies for energy efficiency experience benefits such as reduced peak power demand, saved energy costs and, importantly, improved industry competitiveness. Industry could be a big part of the solution for sustainable development in line with the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Mr Chartterjee.

Speaking at the Gala Dinner, Principal Secretary Energy, Eng. Joseph Njoroge said that the government has great support for energy management awards and will continue to invest in efficiency and conservation.

“We need to embrace energy efficiency as a nation in order to save on energy costs and achieve vision 2030. KAM has played a key role in steering this course to ensure that industries and domestic users take up energy efficiency measures.As a ministry, we have invested about 360 Million in energy management. We are doing almost 50% of our energy from geothermal sources and about 40% from hydro sources,” said Eng. Njoroge.

KAM Chairlady, Ms Flora Mutahi stated that the manufacturing sector consumes about 60% of electricity in the country positioning it as energy intensive and a key consumer. Adding that the need for stable energy supply has been discussed and milestones have been made.

“Industrialization is driving Kenya’s economy. In spite of relatively high manufacturing costs taking cognizance of the contribution by energy costs, manufacturers have a vital role in driving industrialization and GDP expansion. We encourage organizations to create an energy savings culture and integrate energy efficiency function in their corporate and operational strategies,” said Ms Mutahi

This year’s awards, themed ‘13 years on, towards a green economy’, targeted all industrial energy consumers.

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.
