Awards and recognition
Despite being relatively new to the market, Empower New Energy’s unique business proposition and strong team of professionals have already been recognised for innovative thinking and successful project structuring.
In 2020 Empower and its founder, Terje Osmundsen, was recognized by the Africa Leadership Awards. The event showcases the work of those who have demonstrated commitment to the development of Africa, contributing to positive social change and sustainable development.
In 2018, Empower was selected as an award-winner by the Luxembourg-initiated “International Climate Finance Accelerator” (ICFA), a public-private partnership set up to support “future leaders of sustainable fund management”.
In 2020, Empower was awarded a grant from the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA), managed by the African Development Bank, in support of its innovative approach to financing small and medium sized renewable energy projects
