ACCESS TO ENERGY
Access to energy is multidimensional and cannot be
measured purely through binary indicators, such as the availability
of a grid connection or the usage of biomass for cooking.
HEDERA provides a digital version of the questionnaire for the
ESMAP Multi-Tier Framework, which covers the full
dimensionality of energy access at the household
level based on multiple attributes.
The framework considers access to electricity and cooking solutions. Households are ranked into
different tiers (from 0 to 5), depending on the quality of the energy access, the affordability, the reliability,
the availability, among others.
