Ahead of the main event on 25th of this month, the Awards Secretariat is undertaking site visits to nominees’ project sites to ascertain the accuracy of claims made by nominees on ground. These activities make the GEA one of few award schemes which insist on field verification to ensure awards won by players at the close of the review period are duly deserved. Industry partners for this year’s GEA include the Volta River Authority, Ghana Gas, Bui Power Authority, COPEC-Ghana, National Petroleum Authority, Meinergy Technology, Sunon Asogli Power, GOIL, Energy Commission, PURC, GRIDCo, BOST, ECG, and Hendan Transport Logistics.
