Baseline Survey On Estimating Socioeconomic Benefits Of Renewable Energy Technology (Ret) Systems In Bangladesh
The purpose of this study is to carry out baseline surveys on socio-economic benefits of each of the four Renewable Energy Technology (RET) systems of interest, namely- solar mini-grid, solar irrigation pump, Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS) and biogas plant to facilitate the estimate of socioeconomic benefits of the interventions. All the potential users (e.g. households and enterprises in case of solar mini-grid electricity), will be interviewed and information will be collected to make comparisons between treatment and control groups. Separate surveys were conducted for each of the 4 RETs of interest: mini-grid, solar irrigation pump, ICS and biogas plants. In addition, community surveys on all the 4 RETs will complement aspects that are not covered by household surveys.
