Institutional Support to the EAPP in Market Development
The EAPP’s Strategic Plan and the short-term action plan outline the critical activities needed to achieve a reliable integrated regional power system and enhance multilateral power trade in an economically efficient manner. In order to better deliver on this mandate, the EAPP has requested and received financing from the World Bank under the World Bank – executed multi-donor trust fund (MDTF) and the IDA Grant under Component 4 of the Tanzania-Zambia (TAZA) Transmission Interconnector Project (P163752) as well as from the African Development Bank (AfDB) for CapacityBuilding for the operationalization of the regional power market. Other Development Partners are also supporting other activities identified in the EAPP strategic plan that might be related to (or influence) the market design.
Power trading through common planning and implementation of regional generation and transmission interconnection projects was identified as an important strategy of the EAPP for tackling the problems associated with power shortages,low access, high cost and poor power system reliability. Based on the situational analysis and the priority areas of action indicated in the EAPP Road Map and Strategic Plan
(2018-2027), the following four strategic themes have been established:
- Power Infrastructure Development;
- Development of Regional Power Market;
- Excellence in Operational Activities; and
- Learning and Growth.
These four themes are consistent with the EAPP objectives outlined above. This project focuses on theme 2, the development of a Regional Power Market.
