Keeping the Lights On

Jaime Millan Nils-Henrik M. von der Fehr
Price: $ 24.95

Power sector reforms across Latin America in the 1990s based on privatization, liberalization and market forces were largely unavoidable. This book argues that while there is no turning back from this process, many reforms may not prove sustainable without further efforts to build a stronger institutional platform to support them.

The analytical framework presented in Keeping the Lights On: Power Sector Reform in Latin America establishes a baseline for the sustainability of reforms and identifies additional areas for exploration, analysis and inquiry. This baseline is critical to setting the stage for the next generation of reforms--or mid-course corrections--that will be necessary to enhance the sustainability of changes in progress. The book includes case studies of power sector reforms in Colombia, Honduras and Guatemala, as well as a timely section on the security of supply.

Ashley Brown, Executive Director of the Harvard Electricity Policy Group, writes: "This book represents an initial step in the fundamentally needed process of assessing the extent to which the reforms have succeeded and whether the new power sector regimes are sustainable... As the authors note, reform is an ongoing process, not a one-time decision."
