    DIME Program on Energy

    More than 1.6 billion people in developing countries lack electricity. DIME will measure the impact of access to electricity in diverse settings to establish estimates for multiple methods of delivering electricity to rural communities. The effect of price on usage will be captured using willingness-to-pay experiments.
