The research project proposes to conduct a comparative analysis of economic activities spurred by electricity distributed by NEA (DCS) vs CREE. The project will seek to answer three main questions:

  1. What differences are there, if any, in the number of enterprises enabled to start up or expand by access to electricity between areas electrified by CREEs vsĀ  DCS.
  2. What differences are there, if any, in the types and sizes of enterprises enabled by access to electricity between CREE and DCS supplied areas as well as their ownership and management.
  3. Which factors might be responsible for any documented differences in either quantity or quality of enterprises enabled by access to electricity through the two modalities.
