About Us

The Electricity Control Board (ECB) is a statutory regulatory authority established in 2000 under the Electricity Act 2 of 2000; which has subsequently been repealed by the Electricity Act, 4 of 2007; the latter Act having expanded the ECB mandate and core responsibilities. The core mandate of the ECB is to exercise control over the electricity supply industry with the main responsibility of regulating electricity generation, transmission, distribution, supply, import and export in Namibia through setting tariffs and issuance of licenses. The ECB executes its statutory functions through the Technical Secretariat headed by the Chief Executive Officer.

The technical Secretariat, headed by the Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for the day-to-day management of the affairs of the ECB and the provision of sound technical advice to the Board on matters relating to the statutory functions of the ECB (licensing, tariffs, quality of supply, dispute resolution, industry restructuring, etc).
