Energy Safety Nets: India Case Study
Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL)

Published in
February 2020
The aim of this Energy Safety Nets: India Case Study is to identify measures that have been implemented to enable poor people to access modern energy services, analyze their impact, and explore the reasons for their success or lack thereof.

While India’s experience with subsidizing access to electricity is not new, this study focuses on the subsidization of clean cooking energy in India, in particular on the policies and schemes introduced since 2014 to improve access to and targeting of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) subsidies.

Following the Multi-Tier Framework to measure energy access introduced by the Global Tracking Framework report, and work that has adapted it for use in India, the case study looks beyond connections and assesses the progress of the LPG program in India in its entirety.
