Energy is a broad sector that holds two important yet very different industries: the oil and gas sector, and the power sector. The focus of the PPPLRC website is on public-private partnerships (PPPs) that take place in the power sector.
PPPs in the energy sector come in different shapes, sizes and structures and are used mainly in generation and transmission. The methodology used varies, depending on the place, the government and the specifics of the operation; therefore each one is tailored to the needs and circumstances given at the time when the partnership is created.
This section deals with energy PPP projects and power sector reform, legislation and regulation, and independent power projects (IPPs). Navigate the following subsections for more information and sample laws, licenses and agreements.
