Africa/Middle East: Saudi Arabia

Partnership Exchange on Competitive Markets

Date: Winter 2012
Location: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Members of the Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority (ECRA) of Saudi Arabia and NARUC experts discussed market reforms. As Saudi Arabia’s power sector is transitioning from a vertically integrated monopoly into unbundling and restructuring to become a competitive market, tariff setting, licensing, key performance indicators, generation/transmission/distribution expansion plans, customer protection, and other regulatory issues were discussed in this introductory activity.

All participants found the information sharing useful and laid the foundation for a future exchange in Ohio.
