About the publication

In this working paper we explore the data for linkages between groups of households and across the electricity, clean cooking divide exploring for insights on transitions. Our particular interest lies in the use of electricity for cooking, and Ethiopia is an outlier in Sub Saharan Africa in that it has a significant proportion of its urban population using electricity for cooking. In particular we relate the cooking fuel demographics to their use of electricity, what influences household electric cooking choices including who the decision makers are and summarise some key learning points on transition.
