Meeting Botswana's energy and water needs We provided the legal, economic, social, institutional and specialist power and water sector expertise needed to create a strong and efficient independent regulator.

Mott MacDonald was appointed by the Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources in Botswana as lead consultant on a consortium to assist in establishing a new energy and water regulatory agency in Gaborone.


The government was reforming and restructuring its energy, water and sanitation sectors and wanted to attract private capital in infrastructure investment, which required an independent regulatory authority to leverage private sector support.


Our team worked to develop a regulatory framework and legislation to cover all operational, organisational and governance procedures for the newly established authority.

We also assisted the client to recruit new core staff and provided training to help build their knowledge and enhance capacity of the new authority.


We provided the legal, economic, social, institutional and power and water sector expertise needed to create the foundation for a strong and efficient independent regulator - the key to attracting private sector finance.
