Advancing Energy Regulation in Africa

Our  goal is to build a pool of experts in the East African Community and Africa, and prepare for integrated, competitive Energy Markets.

The Approach.

The Center of Excellence on Energy Regulation

  • Collaboration with regional institutions, research centres, and development partners.
  • Development of a Centre for Excellence ensures sustainable capacity building not only for the EAC but also for Africa at large.
  • Supporting the development of an efficient power pool, dynamic regulation, competitive energy market thus increasing the social welfare for the consumers.
  • Ensure studies/research collaboration is carried out to promote innovation in the energy sector and thus improve and enable the region to be on par with the trends in the rest of the world.
  • Organizing short courses and other training for the energy sector stakeholders.

    A Centre of excellence is, therefore, the ideal approach to ensuring a sustainable institutional capacity building framework.
