The African Forum for Utility Regulators (AFUR) will be hosting the 20th edition of their annual conference as an official side event of the Africa Energy Indaba in Cape Town from the 5-7 March 2024. This year, the conference is dedicated to “Opening the Public Services to Private Sector Participation – A Challenge to Regulation”. 

As a regional platform under the African Union, AFUR aims to establish and foster co-operation amongst utility regulators on the African continent in support of Africa’s growth and socio-economic development. Developing standardised effective utility regulatory frameworks is among AFUR’s principal objectives to help promote infrastructure development and regional integration of the continent. 

GET.transform is a proud partner of AFUR. To celebrate the impact yielded so far and plan for the next phase of the successful cooperation, both organisations will sign a dedicated Memorandum of Understanding. GET.transform will also contribute expert insights to the conference: 

  • Bhoomika Tiwari, Advisor Off-Grid Regulation and Market Development will present on “Addressing the Regulatory Challenges of Distributed Generation?” in partnership with Joel Nana of Sustainable Energy Africa (SEA) – 6 March, Session 14, 11.30am SAST/10.30am CET. 
  • GET.transform will also join an expert panel to discuss “Private Sector Participation in Regulatory Processes” – 7 March, Session 18, 4.30pm SAST/2.30pm CET.
