After a week-long internal workshop, on November 7th, 2014, ERA presented and discussed the new streamlined processes for the application for permits to
conduct feasibility studies and generation licences with developers and sector stakeholders.
The new procedures will enable ERA to standardize the project due diligence procedures and consequently expedite the apprisal processes. Further outputs of
this technical assistance supported by GET FiT Uganda and implemented by GRONTMIJ are templates for the respective applications and for feasibility studies.
The workshop was well attended and stakeholders have labeled it as "an important milestone for the sector" and assumed that it would give a "further boost for private sector involvement into the Uganda generation sector".
