Electricity sector regulations in São Tomé and Príncipe to undergo changes

Electricity sector regulations in São Tomé and Príncipe are to change. The legislative package on production and consumption, prepared by the São Tomé and Príncipe General Regulatory Authority (AGER), was in public consultation until the beginning of May.

According to the General Regulation Authority of São Tomé and Príncipe (AGER), the new self-production regulations will encourage the production of individual renewable energy, which means that any individual who has their renewable energy production will be able to inject it into the grid, under certain criteria.

A total of four diplomas were submitted for public consultation, including draft regulations on commercial relations, electricity production and self-production of electricity using renewable energy sources, as well as an amendment to the decree approving the legal framework for the organization of the electricity sector.
