Abstract

This study analysed the current situation of access to electricity in Northwestern Syria. Using a household survey [N=136], a questionnaire with generator owners [N=8] and interviews with academics [N=2] in Idlib and Azaz regions of Syria, the research revealed that electricity generation has become nearly entirely dependent on the private sector and the expenditure on electricity increased by 82 percent, limiting the availability of electricity mostly between 2 and 10 hours per day.
