ENERGY Regulation Board (ERB) board chairperson Jane Kabwela says from November, 2020 to March, this year, ERB has issued 282 petroleum sub-sector licences to Zambian and foreign players. Ms Kabwela said ERB had also been receiving applications for licenses in the electricity sub-sector, mainly in hydro power generation, with Zambians forming a bigger chunk of the applicants. “We are receiving a lot of applications… So, I want to believe that Zambians are now ready. What Zambians did not have was the legislation to actually back them up and also the information,” she said.
