The PeopleSuN team is glad to announce that the household and enterprise survey data collection in Nigeria has been conducted successfully despite the difficult COVID situation. This was only possible thanks to the great collaboration with our Nigerian partners from eHealth Africa, Clean Technology Hub and Africa Polling Institute who conducted the quantitative and qualitative surveys on the ground during 2021. The PeopleSuN team is now analyzing the data to better understand rural energy supply, energy needs, and willingness to pay. The data will serve as important input for future demand and supply modelling tools, that are developed during the next months of the projects. The quantitative data will be shared via the open-access database Harvard Dataverse most likely within March. The qualitative data will be published open-access during a later stage.
