Legal experts from electricity regulatory bodies and Ministries of Energy of ECOWAS Member States have gathered in Accra, Ghana, to begin a three-day meeting for the first review of the Guidelines and Rules of Sanctions for the soon-to-launched ECOWAS Regional Electricity Market.
They will also consider updates on the ECOWAS Regional Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERERA) Enforcement Rules for the electricity market.
This was contained in a statement made available by the Spokesman of ERERA, Uwem Thompson, in Abuja
“The experts are holding their inaugural meeting on the platform of the Legal and Licensing Working Group of ERERA’s Consultative Committee of Regulators, a statutory advisory organ for the ECOWAS electricity regulator.
“The Legal and Licensing Working Group is one of six newly created technical working groups for ERERA, designed to assist the Consultative Committees of Regulators and Operators.
“The other working groups are Strategy and Policy, Tariffs and Performance, Market Operation, Information System as well as Statistics and Benchmarking.
“As part of its mandate, the Legal and Licensing Working Group will provide guidance, advice and assistance to ERERA in all legal and licensing issues. These will include litigation, dispute resolution, enforcement, sanctions, licensing and permits with the aim of enabling ERERA to efficiently regulate the cross-border trade in the regional power market,” the statement said.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
