About the APVIA Awards

The Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association (APVIA) has launched the Asia Photovoltaic Awards named “APVIA Awards” to recognize organizations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the photovoltaic industry through achievements in the areas of capability development or innovation. It is primarily an Asia-Pacific Award but not restricted exclusively to Asia-Pacific citizens.
APVIA Awards are presented in five categories – Industry, Technology, Education, Finance and Application, to organizations/institutions or individuals. These five categories will provide opportunities to honor established and emerging companies, research institutes, professionals, entrepreneurs and individuals across the entire photovoltaic industry. This will include power utilities, photovoltaic sectors as well as the merging sectors of energy efficiency, clean and renewable energy.
The nomination and awards evaluation of the inaugural APVIA Awards started in July 2013, which was warmly responded to by the PV community. Many enterprises and experts took an active part in it. After the evaluation of the Judging Committee, two outstanding individuals and five well-known enterprises/institutions were honoured with the APVIA Awards. 2013 APVIA Awards Ceremony was held in Sands Expo & Convention Centre of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on 29 Oct. 2013, where Mr. Kng Meng Hwee, Deputy Chief Executive of Energy Market Authority (EMA) of Singapore, Mr. Gongshan Zhu, Chief Chairman of APVIA and Executive Director, Chairman & CEO of GCL-Poly, Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Founder of Suntech and the former Chief Chairman of APVIA, and Prof. Armin Aberle, CEO of Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) presented the awards to the winners respectively.
