Fundamentals of Electricity Regulation
March 16 - 20, 2015
What is the role and responsibility of regulation? What are the tools that regulators use and how do they work? How do we utilize the tools of regulation to accomplish our goals for society? These questions and others were discussed during PURC’s one week customized course held in Kampala, Uganda. The course, sponsored by the Electricity Regulatory Authority of Uganda, was attended by personnel from the regulator and electric utilities in Uganda, as well as regulators from Rwanda and Burundi, and facilitated by PURC Director of Energy Studies Ted Kury and PURC Senior Fellow Raj Barua. The participants engaged in discussions of the issues facing the electricity sector throughout East Africa, and applied their knowledge through challenging case studies.
