"Companies like those represented by this year's project finalists are instrumental in meeting public demands for cleaner, more efficient electricity,” said Richard G. Baker, publisher of Power Engineering and senior vice president of PennWell's Power Generation Group. “Power Engineering and Renewable Energy World are once again pleased to be able to recognize some of the exceptional power projects that were completed in the past year."
The greatest minds in power generation will be gathering in Orlando Dec. 13-15 for Power Generation Week to discuss the chemistry, operation, and regulation of power generation. The most innovative and cost-effective solutions for maintaining, operating, and building new power generation will be shared with more than 20,000 attendees.
