ERA Consults Stakeholders on Optimization of Due Diligence

After a rigorous internal process, Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) on November 7th, 2014 held a workshop on streamlined processes for the application for permits to conduct feasibility studies and generation licences with developers and sector stakeholders.  The workshop provided a forum for the developers and other stakeholders to present their comments, views and concerns before ERA finalizes and adopts new due diligence tools.

ERA through support from Development Partners led by KFW under the Global Energy Transfer for Feed-in-Tariff (GETFiT) program, received financial assistance towards the optimization of its due diligence process for the permit, license, and operational stages for power generation projects.  The new procedures will enable ERA to standardize the project due diligence and consequently expedite the appraisal processes.
