This specialised course is designed to provide core skills for utility tariff setting in a regulated context, and is specifically suited for managers, senior professionals and advisors working in African regulatory authorities, government departments, power utilities, development finance institutions and the private sector.
Leading international and regional sector experts will take participants through modelling fundamentals for tariff setting, facilitated through a series of lectures, pre-recorded videos and selected readings.
Course participants will also be guided in the construction of a robust financial model for determining the required utility revenues and tariffs, including all constituent parts such as the regulatory asset base, weighted average cost of capital, regulatory treatment of investments, sensitivities and prudent energy and operation maintenance costs.
The course will also offer optional sessions dedicated to the South African power sector, covering multi-year tariff setting and tariff orders, cost of service methodologies, energy transacting and wheeling tariff design, small-scale embedded generation (SSEG) cost of service tools, and municipality compensation schemes.
