Offering detailed, up-to-date, and original research into power-sector reform and regulation in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Namibia, and Ghana, this study is derived from a three-year peer review and learning process that involved senior executives at the electricity regulatory agencies in each of the countries. Among the individuals and institutions interviewed are energy ministers, utility chief executives, IPP chief executives, financiers, media organizations, and industry and consumer groups. The book contains an analysis of the knowledge and shared experiences gathered in Africa by African scholars. For each of the six countries highlighted, absorbing, lucid, and concise chapters discuss the historical evolution of the power sector, the development of power-sector reform policy and its implementation, the entry of IPPs and emergency electric suppliers, the performance of state-owned utilities, and independent regulation of the power sector.
