Energy Planning

Sessional Paper No 4 of 2004 identified the need to integrate energy planning with the national economic, social and environmental policies, as energy is a critical input in the social economic progress of any economy. At the sector level, there are close linkages between the various forms of energy, which necessitates integrated energy planning to improve coordination and also ensure that projects are implemented timely and within budget.

The Energy Act, No 12 of 2006 assigned the responsibility for development of indicative national energy plans to the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).

To fulfil this mandate, ERC has established a committee with responsibility for preparing and updating the Least Cost Power Development Plan (LCPDP). Committees to carry out planning for fossil fuels and renewable energy will be established in due course.
