Johannesburg - The new CEO of the state energy regulator is looking to boost the watchdog’s staff as part of his plans to improve the entity’s performance and speed of operation.

Chris Forlee, who has a five-year term, said during an interview that the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) had “robust processes” in place and no radical changes were required.

In his new job, Forlee will be running an entity that oversees the electricity sector as well as piped-gas and petroleum pipelines. The watchdog has been under intense scrutiny amid significant energy price hikes since 2008.
