Assignment:

The Government of Mauritius secured funding to implement Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions, which are instruments developed for the protection of the environment. Under this project, the island country’s Utility Regulatory Authority (URA), is tasked with:

  • Reviewing and enhancing the energy sector’s legal and regulatory framework so that private sector participation is promoted.

  • Monitoring the Renewable Energy project approval process and ensuring the integrity and stability of the national grid.

CPCS is assisting the URA by reviewing and assessing the Mauritian electricity and legal framework, assessing existing net metering and net billing schemes, and drafting the Renewable Energy Metering Regulations. CPCS will also conduct training sessions.

Services provided:

  • Review and assess Mauritian electricity and legal framework, namely existing Acts, regulations, codes, policy documents, institutional arrangement, and the market ecosystem to understand renewable energy regulatory needs.

  • Review good practices of renewable energy metering regulations from other jurisdictions, particularly net metering, and net billing.

  • Draft the Renewable Energy Metering Regulations.

  • Facilitate stakeholder consultation and review.

  • Conduct training sessions/workshop or debriefing sessions.

Zoom out: Mauritius, committed to the 2015 Paris Agreement, aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and increase the share of renewable energy to 60% by the same year. As part of this strategy, the government is actively reducing reliance on fossil fuels in the energy sector, with various organizations within the electricity sector playing key roles in achieving these ambitious targets.
