Africa/Middle East: Nigeria

Technical Workshop on Cost-Reflective Tariffs

Date: September 14-17, 2015
Location: Abuja, Nigeria

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC held a technical workshop on cost-reflective tariffs for staff from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), representatives from the eleven distribution companies in Nigeria, and staff from the Nigerian Market Operator. The innovative tariff training enabled the participants to interact with a software-based simulation to learn how to set cost-reflective tariffs under a variety of economic, financial, and environmental conditions. Shortly after the workshop, the distribution companies submitted their rate cases to NERC, using much of the knowledge they gained in the simulation. NERC also utilized the knowledge in its review of the cases.
