CEEW Energy Access Dialogues

28 Jan 2020   |   10:00 - 13:00 hrs IST

CEEW Energy Access Dialogue is a quarterly forum where researchers and practitioners discuss their ongoing work in energy access, deliberate on its implications, explore possibilities for collaborative work, and review immediate priorities in the energy access space.

Ninety-five per cent of Indian households have access to LPG after the introduction of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY). However, lack of sustained use continues to be a problem, especially in rural households. In this fourth edition, we will focus on understanding the factors that ensure sustained use of LPG in rural India. We will also deliberate on factors that determine willingness to pay for the exclusive use of LPG. Emerging findings from two ongoing papers, based on the ACCESS dataset, will add context to the deliberations. The findings from these papers will highlight the need to go beyond cooking fuel policies, interlacing them with overall rural development priorities to enable a complete transition toward cleaner cooking fuels.
