The Clean Energy Solutions Center supported the Mauritius Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities with development of a Utility Regulatory Authority roadmap designed to ensure the sustainability and viability of utility services, protect the interests of both existing and future customers, promote efficiency in both operations and capital investments with respect to utility services and promote competition to prevent unfair and anti-competitive practices in the utility services industry. To assure a comprehensive design of an effective roadmap, recommendations were made on topics such as cost of service regulation, integrated planning, financial analysis, tariff structure and analysis, competitive procurement, project evaluation and negotiation, licensing, renewables integration and consumer protection. The Solutions Center also provided observations on a proposed phased action plan.
Impact of Assistance
Solutions Center assistance will help the regulator to successfully offer reliable electricity service at a reasonable cost while meeting societal goals and balancing the interests of the utility investors, energy consumers and the economy.
