Fact Sheets

The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) in cooperation with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has established a new Central Asia Partnership within its Energy Regulatory Partnership Program (ERPP). This partnership is designed to strengthen the capacity of energy sector regulatory authorities in effectively providing acute oversight of utilities and subsequently attracting investment while protecting consumers’ interests. The partnership will achieve these goals through providing technical assistance and capacity building to regulatory agencies and relevant ministries in the region to move toward transparent and cost-reflective energy pricing. It will help countries review and improve vulnerable customer policies, support the advancement and development of energy markets, and, where possible, support the capacity and independence of regulators.

Providing secure and reliable access to energy is critical to economic growth, while diversifying energy sources strengthens energy security. In Central Asia, increased deployment of renewable generation and enhanced opportunities for cross-border power trade can help the regional governments solve their most urgent energy security challenges and achieve sustainable development goals.

The United States Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. State Department, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has provided more than $19 million to help Zimbabwe respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
