Prices, Products and Priorities: Meeting Refugees’ Energy Needs in Burkina Faso and Kenya


This report draws on primary research to present the energy access situation in the refugee camps of Goudoubo in Burkina Faso and Kakuma I in Kenya. It focuses on cooking, lighting and power in the home, and on energy for enterprises and camp facilities such as clinics, schools, water pumps and street lights. For the first time a detailed insight into displaced people's energy priorities and preferences, and their willingness to pay for access to energy, is presented. The authors' approach draws on detailed quantitative sampling, as well as on in-depth qualitative analysis.
