Under the Energy Utility Partnership Program (EUPP) funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Energy Association (USEA) conducted a workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on Demand Side Management (Energy Efficiency) and Advanced Metering. The workshop was held on May 22 – 25, 2013 and included representatives from the Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (TANESCO), Zanzibar Electricity Corporation (ZECO), the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA), and the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources.
USEA is providing capacity building support to the two utilities in Tanzania through the development of a utility partnership program. The partnership involves executive exchanges, workshops and short-term technical assistance to learn about utility bests practices from their counterparts in the U.S. This initial workshop focused on energy efficiency and advanced metering.
