The electricity sub-sector in the Central African Republic is not highly developed because of the large size of the country and its low population density, the effects of a decade of socio-political unrest on the network infrastructure, and the poor performance of the state-owned company Énergie Centrafricaine (ENERCA), responsible for the sub-sector. The Ministry of Mining, Energy and Hydraulics supervises ENERCA. Since January 2005, there has been a new Electricity Law, which enables private sector participation in the sector. There is also a newly appointed electricity sector regulator, the ARSEC. The World Bank runs a modernisation project for ENERCA (energy) and SODECA (Société de Distribution d’Eau de Centrafrique) http://projects.worldbank.org/P162245?lang=en Energy and water provision are disfunctional: Only 4% of the population had access to electricity in 2010. SODECA has difficulties to provide running tap water: https://www.bbc.com/afrique/region-39789206
