Investors, licensees urged to engage ZERA directly

It has come to the attention of the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) that some unscrupulous people are misleading (especially foreign) potential investors. They misrepresent themselves as middlemen who can “organise meetings and follow up on progress” in the licensing process – at a fee payable by unsuspecting investors.

Investors and the public are hereby advised that ZERA does not work through third parties such as middlemen, facilitators or agents in or outside the country.

The issuance of energy sector licenses which authorize investors to operate in the sector is done in accordance with the country’s Energy Regulatory Authority Act [Chapter 13:23], Electricity Act [Chapter 13:19], Petroleum Act [Chapter 13:22] and ancillary statutes.

Please be advised that ZERA does not charge any fee for enquiries on the energy sector or any other generic and operational issues.

For inquiries, investors, licensees and the general public may visit the ZERA website,, or send energy related enquiries to or call on +263242780010 or +263 242 799 796 for more details.
