PROJECT OBJECTIVE

This regional technical assistance (RETA) is designed to support the continuous work of the Regional Power Trade Coordination Committee, the Working Group on Performance Standard and Grid Code, the Working Group on Regulatory Issues, and eventually the Regional Power Coordination Center in laying the essential building blocks to facilitate GMS regional power trade. 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Through these institutions, much more will be done by the GMS members themselves in developing a full-fledged GMS power market where all countries can realize and share the full benefits of synchronous operations. Interventions include harmonizing performance standards and grid codes dictating the technical rules for the coordinated planning and operation of the regional electricity market; and harmonizing regulatory framework, pricing, legal framework for third party access to the grid and wheeling obligations all towards a unified, fair and transparent regional electricity market.
