The Energy Regulation Board (ERB) in partnership with the Copperbelt University (CBU) has launched a management information system aimed at improving the efficiency of the board.
The system developed by CBU covers the entire spectrum of the energy sector regulation including registration and licensing, compliance monitoring, submission and processing of returns, supply chain monitoring, document management system, fuel marking, complaints handling, and monitoring and evaluation. Speaking during the launch, ERB Managing Director Mr. Yohane Mukabe commended CBU for developing ICT solutions that meet the needs of the public while improving the efficiency of the board. He further explained that the system will widen the reach of the board’s clientele through its process of integrating with various databases of relevant entities for the retrieval of energy and sub-sector information.
And CBU acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor John Bwalya said the University is on hand to partner with both local and international entities in the provision of ICT solutions. Professor Bwalya further applauded ERB for partnering with CBU to efficiently fulfill its mandate of regulating the energy sector through innovative ICT solutions. The project was developed by Copperbelt University at a cost of one million kwacha, to cater to the Energy Regulation board’s Online Registration, licenses application, online Submission of returns, and Compliant management.
