Ten Principles for Power Sector Transformation in Emerging Economies

Access to reliable, affordable electricity is a key driver of economic growth in modern economies. The electric power sector, once a predictable and slow-moving industry, is now a complex system undergoing rapid transformation. Countries are in various stages of reforming and transforming their power sectors to better incorporate modern technologies, assure reliability and affordability, reduce harmful air emissions, meet a wide range of environmental goals, and achieve critical developmental objectives.

Whether power sector transitions are being managed by a central government or being pursued in a more decentralized manner, charting a path towards the modernization of the power sector is a complex task. Strong and well-informed leadership is required to navigate the myriad political, financial, and technical challenges of power sector transformation.
