Data and analytics are key to evidence-based decision-making on policies and investments necessary for achieving SDG7. Comprehensive, detailed data at the global and country levels for energy access (electricity and cooking solutions) is lacking. Geospatial information gaps are a barrier to electrification planning. More efficient ways of data collection for energy access are required to support scaled-up investment.
The ESMAP Energy Data Analytics Hub aims to be a one-stop shop data and knowledge platform where free and a unique breadth of energy-related information can be found and utilized.
The hub consists of databases and analytics platforms and flagship reports that provide a yearly analysis of the data. How do we do this?
