The Electricity Act of 1999 (the Act) established the Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) to regulate the generation, transmission, distribution, sale, export and import of electrical energy in Uganda. With the legal framework for unbundling of services in place, UEB’s generation assets, in particular the power plant assets at Owen Falls dam were privatized in 2003 and a 20-year concession granted to a private entity, Eskom Uganda Limited. This has since been followed by the emergence of several Independent Power Producers (IPPs), who include Bujagali Energy Limited, the developer of the 250 MW Bujagali dam, and many other IPPs of varying smaller generation capacity.
