Beyond the traditional definition of an electric utility, the CEB act as a dynamic organisation that embraces an integrated planning approach. It has been actively involved in assessing the national power market evolution and in evaluating alternative power generation technologies. It also carries out studies of the electricity network in order to secure the long-term, least-cost, electricity supply for the country.
CEB’s goal regarding electricity supply
The main goal of the CEB is to exist as a competitive organisation and to be ready to meet emerging challenges resulting from changes in the power market for the benefits of its customers and the public at large.
In line with the above, with a view to effectively meet future electricity demands, CEB continues to formulate and evaluate electricity supply strategies.These are based on assumptions related to the availability and prices of fuel, market penetration rates of new technologies, new investment limits, environmental emissions, the structure of the electricity market and global economic concerns.
The integrated planning approach, as adopted by the CEB, has indeed strengthened its capability to respond to its customers’ needs, while contributing to its financial soundness in the power market. With these positive outcomes, the CEB now endeavours to move forward in the same spirit.
Building the grid of tomorrow: 'the Smart Grid'. It is a grid that uses digital technology to further enhance reliability and security of the electric system from generation facilities through the delivery systems to electricity consumers.
