4 ZERA 2014 ANNUAL REPORT 1. Chairperson’s Foreword THE BOARD’S SHARED vision is to ensure that the Authority achieves its mandate as set out in the ZIMASSET blue print and the Energy Regulatory Authority Act [Chapter 13:23], read together with Electricity Act 2002 and Petroleum Act of 2006. Provision of reliable and affordable energy is a key enabler to economic growth. In this respect, the year 2014 saw electricity production increasing by 5% to 9 783 GWh compared to 9 315 GWh in 2013. The country imported 978.63 GWh in 2014 against electricity imports of 1 722 GWh in 2013, which was a reduction of 43%. Production sales from 4 Independent Power Producers decreased from 180.2 GWh in 2013 to 170 GWh in 2014. The rest of the IPPs produced for own consumption Notwithstanding the above, the electricity sub-sector continued to underperform with demand outstripping supply resulting in constant load shedding. The deficit status is expected to continue until new power projects are commissioned with the first expected in 2017. In 2014, a total of six prospective power generation applications with potential capacity of 360 MW were received and approved by the Board. Three Independent Power Producers (IPPs) China Africa Sunlight Energy Company (CASECO), Lusulu Energy and Southern Energy power projects all ended the year at feasibility stage and are expected to reach financial closure in 2015. The other IPPs power projects ended the year at various stages of development. Generally, IPPs continue to face challenges of securing project preparation funds to move to bankability and also long term project financing. In 2014 the Authority drafted various codes, regulations and standards to facilitate integration and promotion of renewable energy uptake in the country. The standards were submitted to the Ministry of Energy and Power Development for promulgation. These initiatives, together with approval and adoption of the Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff guideline, will contribute towards increased penetration of renewable energy projects. The Authority conducted a National Energy Efficiency Audit to establish energy savings opportunities across the various categories of electricity customers. The preliminary report submitted at the end of 2014 indicated that more than 255MW savings can be achieved. The high rate of fatalities involving electricity continues to be of great concern to the Authority. In 2014 a total of thirty fatalities were recorded. In response, the Authority drafted Public Safety Regulations that will govern the electricity installations and safe use of electricity. To ensure that good quality petroleum products are supplied to the public, the Authority procured a mobile fuel testing laboratory that has increased the surveillance of fuel quality by 75%. Ten oil companies were prosecuted for violating fuel quality regulations and significant litres of contaminated product was confiscated. ZERA funded a number of research and development projects which focused on increasing efficiency in the use of energy and promoting the use of renewable energy technologies. The Authority will continue to operate using funds raised from the statutory sources namely fees and levies. The staff head count continues to grow as the Authority identifies resource gaps in achieving the mandate and strategic goals. In terms of manpower development, the organisational structure was reviewed and aligned with emerging strategic issues resulting in additional nine positions being approved as part of building the Authority’s capacity for effective service delivery. In December 2014, ZERA successfully hosted the Regional Electricity Regulators Association (RERA) Annual General Meeting and Conference in Victoria Falls under the theme “Leveraging the SADC Region’s Energy Potential through an Integrated Approach”. In conclusion, the Board wishes to express its sincere gratitude to the support provided by the Ministry of Energy and Power Development, other Government agencies and departments and various stakeholders in the energy sector.

ZERA 2014 ANNUAL REPORT 13 6. The Chief Executive Officer’s Overview 6.1 Introduction In its third year of operation, ZERA’s strategic thrust was on building, strengthening and enhancing the capacity of the institution whilst creating an enabling regulatory environment for new and existing investments in the energy sector. The Authority made great strides in achieving the targets for the year which include developing the standards, key regulations and increased surveillance and monitoring of the sector. The milestones are in line with the overarching strategic goals and ZIMASSET aspirations of ensuring increased access and security of energy supply by 2018. The achievements, however, had their own challenges. Local electricty generation failed to meet demand due to forced and planned outages resulting in high levels of load shedding. In the petroleum sub-sector, supply was relatively adequate and stable. The challenge, however, was price volatility and delayed response to the decline in the international fuel prices. The introduction of the mobile fuel quality testing laboratory in the petroleum subsector instilled some measure of consumer confidence in quality assurance as ten service stations were charged for selling contaminated fuel. Following the enactment of LPG regulations which provide for licensing and minimum infrastructure requirements to ensure safe use Eng. Gloria Magombo Chief Executive Officer and handling of LPG, the Authority carried out training programs for LPG operators across the country on the new requirements. ZERA also carried out campaigns for safe use of LPG in the home for consumers. There was a significant increase in the uptake of LPG as an alternative source of energy as a result of power shortage. ZERA continues to enforce compliance with the new regulations to ensure public safety. The following sections outline major milestones and achievements attained by ZERA in fulfilling its mandate.

Review of Electricity Sector Licence Fees The Board reviewed the licence fees for transmission and distribution to the following: • A fixed licence fee of $120, 000 for electricity transmission. • The licence fees for electricity distribution as $20, 000 fixed plus $10, 000 per 1 000 GWh or part thereof. The application fees for transmission and distribution licenses were adjusted to be in synch with regional best practises and this review is expected to improve investment in Zimbabwe. The proposal has been submitted together with that of reducing generation license fees. A proposal to amend the Statutory Instrument 103 of 2008 Electricity (Licensing) Regulations was done and submitted to the Ministry of Energy and Power Development (MOEPD) for gazetting. iv.
