The African Forum for Utility Regulators (AFUR) took part in a Global panel discussion organised by the African School of Regulation ASR. The panel was tasked to examine the existing approaches and present challenges in regional power trade in Africa. Topics ranged from legal agreements between countries, the characteristics of the regional bodies, the distribution of roles and responsibilities –specifically including regional transmission planning –, the delegated authority to the regional regulator, and the adequacy of the present regional organisations to meet the present needs of power trade and investment in regional infrastructures in Africa. The main objective of the session was to examine the current situation and the underlying justification of the solutions that have been adopted.
