The African School of Regulation (ASR) has been launched by a partnership of leading institutions in energy and climate change.


The initiative to create the African School of Regulation (ASR) has been launched via a scientific knowledge partnership agreement among the European University Institute (EUI), the University of Cape Town (UCT), the Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences (PAUWES), the Enel Foundation, RMI, and the Energy Nexus Network (TENN).  

The launch brought together renowned institutions working in both the energy and climate change sectors with the aim to offer knowledge and capacity building initiatives, as well as applied research and space for policy dialogue, for governments, regulators, utilities, and other stakeholders to better regulate the African energy sector in support of the continent’s socio-economic development and environmental sustainability.  

The establishment of the African School of Regulation will be executed in two phases. Led by the Florence School of Regulation and in coordination with partner institutions, phase one will see the development of training programs, the implementation of specific activities in research and policy dialogue. During this first phase, the partners will identify an African hosting institution(s) and will establish modalities for the future governance of the ASR, including the program of activities and a viable financing plan for a period of 5 years.
