Group Chief Operating Officer, Income Electrix Limited, Dr. Dallas Peavey, has been elected into the Fellowship grade of the Nigerian Institution of Power Engineers (NIPE) in light of his contributions to the advancement of the Nigerian power sector.
Peavey’s experience cuts across the generation, transmission and distribution value chains of the power industry in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Pacific Rim. He is the erstwhile Chief Executive Officer of Egbin Power Plc, Nigeria’s largest power generating station, and a renowned industry analyst looking to drive holistic growth and development in the power sector.
Conferrer of the fellowship, NIPE, is the umbrella body of the engineering practitioners in the Nigerian power sector and a division of the Nigerian Society of Engineers. It is a prestigious technical institution tasked with driving professionalism in the Nigerian power industry.
The Fellowship grade (FNIPE) is the highest recognition of the NIPE and its conferees are expected to be above board and gain global acceptance as power engineering experts. An FNIPE holder becomes a certified power sector icon and authority on engineering practices, distinguished in their specialized area of power as accomplished professionals.
“The Council considered your person worthy of this great honour, having painstakingly x-rayed your unique profile, selfless contributions to the development and advancement of the power engineering profession, your numerous positive impacts to the institution and Nigeria in general,” said NIPE Registrar/CEO, Engineer Edward M. Obokoh.
In his remarks, Dr Peavey, who expressed gratitude for the prestigious conferment when the Nigerian power sector is on the cusp of phenomenal growth thanks to the contribution of industry stakeholders, said: “The NIPE fellowship is a rare but very welcome invitation to continually break barriers by forging meaningful stakeholder engagements within my space and beyond so we can collectively revolutionize the electricity value chain and make Nigeria a favourable domestic and commercial destination for power.”
The formal conferment ceremony of the award is scheduled to hold in Abuja later this month.
