The dataset contains the “Refugee Settlements Electricity Access (RSEA)” in tabular (*.csv) and geospatial database (*.gpkg) formats and provides the modelled technical and economic potential for PV mini-grids in 288 refugee settlements in Sub-Saharan Africa. Along with these, additional information on customer connections and population figures are included.

The RSEA Database was designed and developed to gather the multidimensional factors that can determine a refugee settlement's energy dimension. These factors were chiefly environmental (such as variability of solar radiation and avoided GHG emissions), technical (electrification status, distance to grid), social (population, electricity demand, social infrastructure), and economic (e.g., PV mini-grid component prices) considerations that can influence a stakeholder decision on the deployment of a PV and battery storage mini-grid in a displacement setting.
