dc.descriptionAnalyzing the impact of government policies and available technologies to improve the percentage of poor households using electricity in the urban areas of Uganda.
dc.descriptionUrban poor households face challenges of meeting energy needs within their economic resources and established infrastructure. Previous Government efforts to meet this need by subsidizing modern energy supply were poorly designed and ill targeted. Despite those initiatives, the eventual energy sold was not used for income generation activities. This study analyses the impact of government policies and available technologies to improve the percentage of poor households using electricity in the urban areas of Uganda.
