National de Musique François Mitterrand was set up by the Government in
1987. In 1992, it became a Trust Fund by Act of Parliament and is managed by
a board of trustees under the aegis of the Minister of Arts and Culture.
Since 2006 it has started decentralizing its activities and has opened branches in Grand Baie, Mahebourg, Port-Louis, Surinam, Flacq and Rodrigues. Over 2,000 students are presently enrolled at the Conservatoire. In 2006, the Conservatoire became a recognised Cambridge Centre, preparing students for music as a subject at GCE '0' and 'A' levels.
The Central Electricity
Board (CEB) is a parastatal body wholly owned by the Government of Mauritius
and reporting to the Ministry of Energy and Public Utilities. Established in
1952 and empowered by Central Electricity Board Act of January 1964, the
CEB's business is to "prepare and carry out development schemes with the
general object of promoting, coordinating and improving the generation,
transmission, distribution and sale of electricity in Mauritius".
In 2016, the CEB produced some 1,174 GWh of energy, equivalent to around 43% of the total generation, from its 4 thermal power stations and 10 hydroelectric plants. The remaining 57% (1,565 GWh) of energy was purchased from Independent Power Producers.
