Institutional structure reform of the Cameroon electricity sector
Cameroon’s electricity sector is undergoing significant changes. Before 1974, electricity was supplied by many different companies until they were nationalized and merged into a single, vertically integrated company that had responsibility for production, transmission, distribution and electricity retail sales. This monopolistic organization has, however, certain limitations and the national company was privatized in 2001. This article presents assessment of the hydro sector, previous and current legislation, and opportunities for private investors.
