Mr Pavel Robert Oimeke, 41, is the new substantive Director General of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).
Until his appointment, Mr Oimeke was the director of renewable energy and has been acting in the position since the previous boss Eng Joseph Ng'ang'a left the energy regulator.
He holds a Bachelor of Technology in Chemical and Process Engineering and a Masters of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering.
Cofek congratulates him over the appointment and hopes he will move with speed to lower the cost of energy while making it reliably affordable.
ERC is at the centre of consumer protection issues on the energy sector. Cofek has been partnering with ERC and is planning the next Consumer Dialogue Forum in Mombasa in January, 2018
