The essence of this course is to expose each delegate to how power sector reforms in the electricity sector was implemented in numerous countries in Europe, Asia and Latin American countries. The process for the structural transformation of the power sector could be traced to the united states in the late 70 ‘s with the introduction of the public utility regulatory policy act which allowed for the emergence of IPP’s in the USA.
From that period to date numerous countries in the developed and developing world have implemented one form of reform or the other by allowing for the liberalization of the sector, increased competition and ultimately private ownership.
The course outline attempts to aggregate the totality of this global experience by discussing the historical foundation of the reform process, it’s implementation on a comparative basis in the developed and developing world, lessons to be learnt from these experiences and what is in store in the future.
In addition, this course would discuss the contemporary managerial technique that is obtained in fully deregulated private sector managed electricity power sector. We would also discuss some of the lessons that developed countries can learn from the managerial experiences of the developed countries and the mistakes to avoid.
