Abstract: This paper analyses the regulatory reforms and the liberalization of the electricity sectors in developing countries. Inefficient electricity systems in many developing countries have led to introduction of market forces in electricity and to regulatory reforms. Weak economic and political institutions, macroeconomic instability, lack of regulatory experience and unwillingness of governments to liberalize the sector are however important constraints for these reforms. The first part of the paper deals with the possibility of liberalization taking into account the institutional and macroeconomic context , the second part draws lessons from reforms that have allready been implemented. The end presents an optimal model of electricity in developing countries and draws policy implications for donors.
