The editors of Power Engineering and Renewable Energy World magazines are pleased to announce our 2016 Project of the Year Finalists.
Eight outstanding power projects were selected from industry-nominated projects in four categories: Natural Gas, Renewables, Coal, and Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
To be eligible, projects must have come online between Aug. 1, 2015 and July 31, 2016. Editors from Power Engineering and Renewable Energy World selected the finalists based on the following criteria: Technological innovation, local impact, logistical challenges and creativity, and capacity.
The winning projects in each category will be announced Dec. 13 during the keynote session at POWER-GEN International 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. This year, POWER-GEN is coming to Orlando with four co-located events: Nuclear Power International 2016, COAL-GEN 2016, Renewable Energy World International 2016, and the GenForum. We’re calling it Power Generation Week, which features five conferences and four exhibitions under one roof. More than 1,400 exhibiting companies from every sector of the industry will be showcasing their products and services on the exhibit floor.
