Electricity sector reforms in Namibia and Mozambique

Abstract [en]

During the two last decades the electricity sectors of both developed and developing countries have been going through a process of reforms and restructuring. Evidence from various countries has led to some main agreements of the main steps of reforms and generalized models for the reform process have been worked out. The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the electricity sector reforms of Namibia and Mozambique and analyze how successful the reforms have been from the viewpoint of the extended generic reform model. The electricity sector reforms are founded on the view of generation as potentially competitive activities and distribution and transmission as having natural monopoly characteristics and thus a need to be regulated. The model is a generalized model based on evidence from reforming countries and it has been extended to include the impact of institutional framework and social aspects. Both the Namibian and Mozambican reforms have more or less followed the main steps in the extended generic reform model even though they have taken somewhat different approaches. The countries have considered the social aspects in their reform processes and it is probably the case that the institutional situations in both countries have influenced and slowed down the reforms.
