NERC, Brazil agency seal agreement on information exchange

Abuja – The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, has entered into an agreement with Agencia Nacional de Energia Electrica, ANEEL, of Brazil, to collaborate in the area of information exchange aimed to deepen the development of the nation’s energy sector. The collaboration, according to NERC, dated back to 2011 when the NERC under the special scheme established by law, resolved to partner with the commission in the area of regulation of the electricity sector.

The agreement focused on organisation and furthering of regulatory bodies; exchange of technical and legal documentation, personnel training, tariff determination, electricity market monitoring and development. Other objectives are consumer protection issues and surveys, quality standards and renewable energy, among others.

In line with the agreement, three members of staff of the commission,were nominated from three divisions; Renewable Research Development, Legal and Consumer Affairs, led by the Vice-Chairman of the Commission, Muhammed Lawal Bello. The vice chairman revealed that ANEEL had a comprehensive customer redress mechanism worth emulating.
