“This award is a benchmark and recognition for society and the business world who have gone above and beyond in encouraging the progress of the electricity and energy sector in Asia,” explained Simon.

It is known that in the previous two years of the Power Energy Awards, the winners were dominated by Bahan National Berhad (TNB) from Malaysia, SP Group from Singapore and the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) from Thailand. Meanwhile, at the Power & Energy Awards this time, PLN President Director Darmawan Prasodjo excelled in the “Male Executive of the Year” category, surpassing executive nominees from other companies, namely Korea Southern Power (KOSPO) from South Korea and HDF Energy from France.

PLN President Director Darmawan Prasodjo expressed his gratitude for the award from Enlit Asia. According to him, this award is the result of PLN’s transformation efforts in responding to global challenges.

According to him, PLN’s transformation in the last three years has changed the company from backward looking to forward looking. In other words, PLN’s previously manual business processes have become end-to-end digital in terms of generation, transmission and distribution to support energy transition efforts.

“Currently we are facing the same challenge, namely climate change. For this reason, we are building an electricity plan that is environmentally friendly in history. We have developed a more aggressive strategy in accelerating the use of new, renewable energy,” said Darmawan.

However, continued Darmawan, to face these challenges, PLN cannot operate without collaborating.

“Through this event, we share PLN’s dreams. We will build a strong foundation for strong collaboration in the future,” he said.

Darmawan said that the award was the result of the hard work of all PLN employees in improving the company’s performance and service to the community. Therefore, this award will be an encouragement for all PLN employees to innovate and provide the best service to the community.

“This award is given to 60,000 PLN people who work hard to serve customers better,” concluded Darmawan.
