GPN – Multinational – Regional Harmonization of Regulatory Frameworks and Tools for Improved Electricity Regulation in COMESA

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) has received a Grant from the African Development Fund to finance the Regional Harmonization of Regulatory Frameworks and Tools for Improved Electricity Regulation in COMESA.

The Regional Harmonization of Regulatory Frameworks and Tools for Improved Electricity  Regulation in COMESA (the “Project”) is a regional initiative designed to enhance the sustainability of
the electricity sector of the region through effective, uniform, transparent and enforceable regulatory frameworks that set out clear principles, rules, processes and standards for COMESA member
countries.

The project will substantially strengthen and enhance the technical capacity of RAERESA and its members through the various, studies, tools and guidelines that will be developed under the Project.

The Project reports will also provide relevant knowledge, data and insight on critical issues in the  sector with respect to economic regulation, including tariff analysis and models, and quality of service regulation in terms of utility performance measures.

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
The specific objective of the project is to harmonize and align regulatory frameworks to facilitate electricity exchanges among COMESA member countries. A combination of studies, capacity building and development of tools will be undertaken to realise these main objectives. The grants will fund technical assistance to promote the development and adoption of regional
electricity regulatory principles, enhance capacity to monitor utility performance across the region, conduct a cross-border analysis of electricity tariffs, and develop a centralized database management system in both blocs.
