NAIROBI, KENYA: The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has changed its name to the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) with effect from March 28.

The changes come following the enactment of the Energy Act, 2019 by President Uhuru Kenyatta in March.

The new energy law among other things proposed the formation of three key national energy entities to manage and regulate energy resources in the country.

The three bodies include the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority, the Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation and the Nuclear Power and Energy Agency.

ERPA Director General Pavel Oimeke said in a statement that the Authority is currently in transition to fully align itself to the relevant Laws and shall continuously inform its stakeholders on key developments.
