Pakistan - Strengthening of Central Power Purchasing Agency

The license of the National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) was amended in May 2015 to separate the market settlement function to an independent Central Power Purchasing Agency Guarantee Limited (CPPA-G). The Market Operator Rules and the Commercial Code were approved by the Government and the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) to govern the commercial transactions of the power market. CPPA-G has also signed a number of new and revised agreements to start its initial stage of operations. The objective of this project is to support and enable CPPA-G’s establishment and commencement of its operations. We are providing management support, capacity building, access to expert resources, and training for the CPPA-G management team and employees principally by embedding the required international and national staff in CPPA-G in advisory and supporting roles.
