The three finalists for the renewable/sustainable category are the Canoe Creek hydroelectric project in British Columbia, Canada, owned by Barkley Project Group Ltd.; the biogas facility project in Vermont owned by PurposeEnergy, Inc.; and the Tekeze hydropower project in Ethiopia, owned by Ethiopian Electric Power Corp.

"Companies like those represented by this year's project finalists are instrumental in meeting the growing demand. Power Engineering magazine is once again pleased to be able to recognize some of the exceptional power generation projects that were completed in the past year."
