Electricity Regulation Index for Africa 2018

The ERI is intended to serve as a diagnostic tool, highlighting key areas of regulatory design and practice that require improvement and reform. In this regard, the ERI is informative, noting that the majority of African countries in the first sample have developed relatively robust institutional frameworks underpinning the regulation of their electricity sector. The credit goes mainly to national governments, which, with the support of their development partners, have widely adopted and implemented key laws establishing strong policies governing their respective electricity sectors and creating transparent and empowered regulators. oversee. Despite these advances, the ERI scores also show that much remains to be done to strengthen regulatory independence from the regulated and executive sectors, as well as regulators' ability to effectively regulate the sector. electricity and ensure its long-term health and sustainability.

Our immediate goal for this first edition of the ERI is to engage key players in the African power sector, particularly African governments and their development partners, to take action. We believe this will help strengthen targeted assistance and assistance to improve national regulatory environments and build the capacity of regulators in the sector. In the long term, the ERI is intended as a benchmarking tool to track the progress of African countries by aligning regulatory frameworks for their electricity sector with international standards and best practices.

Sound regulation systems across the continent are essential to ensure that Africa mobilizes the necessary funding to provide universal access to electricity. The Bank is committed to supporting credible initiatives in support of this goal
