Measuring household energy access in South Africa

Client: Global Network on Energy for Sustainable Development

Period: 2014

Project leader and team: Louise Tait

This project investigated the state of energy access among urban households in a South African city. The project developed a suite of indicators with which to measure the state of energy access among households. A survey of households was undertaken on energy consumption patterns. This baseline was used to interrogate the South African policy approach to energy access from and Energy Plus framework perspective.
