The EPPSA project takes a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to research multilevel determinants of energy poverty, the effects of energy poverty on energy poor populations, the impacts of fuel burning on air quality and natural resources, factors in energy transitions in sub-Saharan Africa, and functionality of health systems and other public infrastructure in societies with limited electricity infrastructure. In addition to our primary data collection efforts, we work on building a comprehensive secondary data sets to answer research questions about energy poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. Our team gathered and cataloged population representative survey data, geospatial infrastructure data, and remotely sensed datasets to test hypotheses related to meso- and macro-level determinants of energy poverty and impacts of shocks or natural experiments, and provide contextual data regarding how longer-term trends in population and environment dynamics are influencing energy poverty related outcomes. These datasets were produced and are owned by entities not associated with our project, so our aim is to produce a database that connects researchers to data that may be outside of their discipline. This is an ongoing effort with two aims: (1) to catalog these data and identify specific applications to energy poverty research, and (2) to conduct secondary data analyses to explore the population environment dynamics of energy poverty. ┬áPlease see the “Data” tab to learn more about the datasets we have identified; see the “Projects Underway” tab to learn more about the different analyses our team members are in the process of completing. We will continue to update this site with new datasets and projects, so please check back for updates.
