Africa/Middle East: East Africa

First East Africa Regional Partnership Exchange on Foundations of Regional Electricity Trade

Date: October 21-23, 2014
Location: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), this first partnership exchange included regulators from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and the Independent Regulatory Board (IRB) of the Eastern Africa Power Pool (EAPP). NARUC experts shared their practical experience and expertise on key elements of regional trade, including regional transmission organizations, transmission tariffs, cost allocation and grid code.

The peer-to-peer aspect of the activity provided an opportunity to share valuable lessons-learned from the U.S. and discuss ongoing developments in East Africa. The activity supported the overall goal of NARUC’s East Africa Regional Regulatory Partnership to support Power Africa by enhancing the enabling environment for investment and building the capacity of energy regulators in East Africa for planned cross-border interconnections and new generation.
