Energy Sector Governance and Reform

To secure access to energy for all, particularly the poor, developing countries must ensure good governance in the power sector. Consumers benefit when energy operations are efficient, accountable, transparent, and predictable.

Among other activities, energy sector governance and reform include:

  • establishing competitive electricity markets, adopting market pricing mechanisms, and regulating monopolies
  • encouraging private sector participation, particularly public-private partnerships
  • supporting research, legislation, technology development, and regulation
  • adopting tariff structures to promote energy conservation
  • training in energy planning, demand forecast, financial management, operations and maintenance of assets, and economic assessment
