The New Electricity Law of Mozambique
The Government of Mozambique has recently reviewed the Electricity Law and is expected to pass it into legislation at the beginning of 2019. The draft law consolidates the principles of organisation and operation of the electric power system and the general rules applicable to the exercise of production, transmission, distribution and sale activities, including export and import to provide more citizens with access to electricity.
A representative of the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy said the new Law will repeal the current legislation, which recognises the companies Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) and Hidroeléctrica de Cahora Bassa as the holders of exclusive rights to these activities. This will open up space for private investment in the import and export of electricity, electricity consumption and energy services.
During this exclusive briefing, you will receive much needed clarity on the new Electricity Law of Mozambique, in order for your company to understand and comply with the Law AND benefit from the new opportunities in the Energy industry.
We will run through the new Electricity Law in its entirety and break down the most important sections and articles.
