Speaking during the awards ceremony, the Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Energy and Petroleum Hon. Davis Chirchir, highlighted the place of energy in the country’s socio-economic prosperity and called for its responsible production and consumption.

He stated that energy is directly linked to a nation’s economic prosperity as it drives all aspects in the 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.”

KAM Chairman, Rajan Shah 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.
