Technical Assistance to the Kenya Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) to develop an open access market framework and rule
The project’s objective is to support ERC towards the development of an open access market framework by drafting an Open Access Market Rule and Framework specific to the Kenyan context, to further the development of competition in Kenya’s electricity sector. The Open Access Framework will outline key components, well as principles, rules, and mechanisms for operating in an open access system. The Draft Rule will serve as the main regulatory tool for establishing an open access framework and will provide clear guidelines on the rights and responsibilities of all parties, including the tariff determination process, reporting requirements, enforcement measures, and mechanisms for dispute resolution. The project was commission by NARUC (assignment funded by USAID).
