FSR and partner institutions launch the African School of Regulation initiative (RSCAS-EUI, Italy)

The European University Institute’s Florence School of Regulation together with 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) have signed a scientific knowledge partnership agreement to create the African School of Regulation (ASR) and support the energy transition in Africa.

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. In this regard, the initiative will focus on implementing applied research and creating a space for policy dialogue amongst governments, regulators, and other stakeholders, to better regulate the African energy sector and support the continent’s socio-economic development and environmental sustainability.

Inspired by the mission of the EUI’s Florence School of Regulation, the ASR aims to be a pan-African centre of excellence on energy regulation, providing capacity building on international regulatory practices.
