The off-grid lighting transition and other recent discussion topics

No Comments »

We have now published a discussion paper on offgrid lighting in Africa, where we outline the largely unnoticed transition from kerosene to LED lamps powered by dry-cell battery lamps. In further recent discussion papers, we discuss the evidence of impacts of electrification with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa (where we also rely on a recent study conducted in Rwanda) and assess the link between rural electrification and domestic violence.
