This five day course is aimed at managers and professionals in government, regulatory authorities, utilities, civil society and the private sector working in the electricity sector. The course is offered by the Management Programme in Infrastructure Reform and Regulation (MIR) at the UCT Graduate School of Business. MIR is a leading centre of excellence and expertise in Africa and emerging economies.
The course is run in association with the African Forum of Utility Regulators and the Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa

Leaders, managers and professionals in infrastructure sectors around the world are facing new and complex challenges. State-owned, vertically integrated, monopoly industries are being restructured to improve performance, and private sector participation is frequently on the agenda. New regulatory regimes are being put in place and reformed utilities need to deliver expanded and affordable services for the poor, while underpinning and supporting economic growth. Renewable energy is reaching grid-parity and new models need to be explored to accelerate investments in power generation capacity.

This programme, focused on Africa's needs, exposes participants to the frontiers of international experience and to best practice in managing these challenges and the new regulatory environment effectively. A number of case studies from Africa are presented. Participants will also be given a thorough grounding in the fundamentals and practice of economic regulation of utilities.
