This report highlights key market, financing, and regulatory challenges related to the scale-up of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a cooking fuel, particularly for those low-income families living at the “base of the pyramid” (BoP). The content was developed from information acquired through a technical assistance engagement the Clean Cooking Alliance and ENEA Consulting delivered to KopaGas in Tanzania. The Global LPG Partnership provided additional support and consulting. The report highlights how technology-enabled pay-as-you-go (PAYG) solutions adapted from the off-grid solar sector are emerging to enable innovative business models that increase the affordability and availability of LPG in emerging markets, such as this case study in Tanzania.
