Genesis assisted the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority to develop pricing models for the regulation of liquid fuels in Zimbabwe. 

The liquid fuels include petrol and blended petrol, diesel, aviation fuel, biofuel (ethanol) and LPG. To this end Genesis conducted electronic surveys and provided expert advice to ensure the price regulation framework is both practical enforceable.

We used our expertise in liquid-fuel regulation in other jurisdictions to develop appropriate approaches to ensure reasonable returns to oil companies and fuel retailers. 

Despite data challenges, the team developed evidence-based fuel-price building blocks that would greatly enhance the viability of the liquid-fuel industry in Zimbabwe as well as enhance transparency in the price-setting process.
