Duncan Amoah, Executive Secretary of the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) Ghana has paid a courtesy call on the Energy Media Group (EMG) at its SSNIT Emporium office, Airport City, Accra.
EMG, a media firm solely dedicated to activities and persons in the energy sector, is the main organizer of the distinguished Ghana Energy Awards and publishers of the Energy Ghana Magazine.
Leading a delegation from the Chamber, the call was to extend their congratulations to the EMG on how far it has come in its operations, particularly in redefining excellence in the country’s energy sector.
COPEC is an independent organization whose work lies majorly in protecting the petroleum consumer in Ghana. It has been a participant in the EMG’s flagship Ghana Energy Awards.
This involvement in the event, the Executive Secretary said, had been instrumental in propelling the Chamber forward. They are, thus, part-takers in the several value additions that participating organizations benefit from the Awards Scheme.
“We are not surprised at how far the Energy Media Group, organizers of the prestigious Ghana Energy Awards has come. The Scheme is credible, and we have been witnesses to the stringent procedures employed to obtain their results,” Mr. Amoah noted.
He added that he believes in the work that the Energy Media Group has set out to do, so much that he had to shelve a similar idea of the awards because the current scheme has fulfilled his intentions in this regard for the sector.
Moreover, he indicated the Chamber’s continued support to EMG in terms of data, research, and other input for the latter’s activities.
Ing. Henry Teinor, Chief Executive Officer of the Energy Media Group, appreciated COPEC for the call. He noted that his outfit is in constant pursuit of excellence and has consistently strived to attain distinction in its operations. He further acknowledged Mr. Amoah’s support over the years up to this point.
Attributing the company’s growth to the Almighty God’s benevolence, he added that the mindset of excellence in the organization and an attitude of service have been key.
Meanwhile, the call, he said, was timely as the journey toward this year’s Awards event is set to commence with a Media Launch on July 14, to officially open nominations and unveil the theme.
This is to be ensured by a lineup of activities including various exhibitions, the Energy Personalities Outreach Programme (EPOP), for the apex award winners to interact with students of second cycle institutions; and the GEA Streetlight Installation Initiative-SII.
Others are Courtesy Calls on industry partners; Nominees’ Announcement; Site Visitation to Prospective Nominees’ Project Sites to ascertain the veracity of claims made by nominees on the ground. This makes the GEA one of few schemes which insist on field verification to ensure awards won by players at the close of the review period are duly deserved. These activities will successively lead the event proper to come November.
He, therefore, encouraged players in the energy industry to look forward to a bigger and better event this year.
Ing. Teinor, on behalf of the Energy Media Group, used the opportunity to present to the delegation its latest Special Edition of the Energy Ghana Magazine which features an exclusive interview with Ing. Emmanuel Antwi-Darkwa, CE of VRA.
