The Middle East Electricity Awards celebrated the industry best in the regional power, lighting, renewable, and nuclear sectors at a glittering ceremony and cocktail reception in Dubai last night.


Hotly contested among 21 shortlisted finalists from more than 200 nominations across seven different categories, the awards are a headline fixture of Middle East Electricity, which opened yesterday (17 February) at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre, and concludes tomorrow (19 February).   


A special honour of the evening went to His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO and Managing Director of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), who received the Power Personality of the Year award, in acknowledgment of his leadership role behind DEWA’s contribution to the economic development of Dubai.


Among the standout winners in the other categories were the Trojan Battery Company and Incon General Contracting, who took home the Solar Project of the Year Award for their role in developing the UAE’s first ever solar lighting project for rural area roads.


The 11 kilometre stretch of solar-powered road lighting in the Wadi Sadr area, inland from the port town of Khor Fakkan was commissioned by the UAE Ministry of Public Works in January 2012, requiring no electrical installations or additional power infrastructure.


Another solar project was behind the Best Innovation / Technology of the Year Award which was won by the Dubai Municipality and ALSA Solar Systems Ltd, for their Solar Pumping Systems project.


Using a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable drip irrigation system that combines solar energy and Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE), the Solar Pumping Systems project is being implemented at 34 roundabouts across Dubai.


Anita Mathews, Director of Informa Energy Group, organisers of Middle East Electricity, said: “The Middle East Electricity Awards are an excellent reference to pay tribute to the outstanding achievements of individuals, departments, teams and organisations that have contributed to the growth and development of the regional energy industry across the region.”


“The Middle East energy sector continues to grow with new exciting projects, innovations, and developments being announced every year throughout the region and tonight is our chance to recognise, appreciate and celebrate these accomplishments.”
