Hedley Palmer Award

APPrO's Hedley Palmer Award

 

The Hedley Palmer Award is a special form of recognition presented each year by APPrO to honour an individual who in the judgment of the APPrO Board has made an outstanding contribution to the Ontario power industry. It has been given to a different individual each year since 1989 during the banquet dinner at the annual IPPSO or APPrO Conference. According to APPrO, it’s the highest honour bestowed annually in the power generation business in Canada.

The Hedley Palmer Award is a unique opportunity to focus industry attention on someone who you feel is particularly deserving of recognition.

The Hedley Palmer Award

 

Background:

Hedley Palmer was the Director of Marketing at Ontario Hydro for a number of years, and he held a number of other positions at Ontario Hydro before that. His work came to APPrO’s attention in the 1980’s when he took a number of steps internally and externally that helped prepare Ontario Hydro to deal with other power suppliers besides itself, and which eventually led to the NUG program and RFP in 1988, although he played no direct role in those initiatives to our knowledge. Mr. Palmer passed away in 2002.
