The Moving Energy Initiative has developed a model offering the first estimates of the scale and cost of energy use and CO2 emissions among the households of persons of concern to UNHCR worldwide. This is a highly simplified model of a complex system and is intended as a learning document for the international community - to be built on and improved over time. The model gives indicative estimates of values and should not be viewed as a comprehensive picture, but rather as a starting point for further research.

Where evidence exists, we invite practitioners and those working on the ground to submit their own data and observations to improve this picture. To do so, use the feedback buttons in the country specific pop-ups. A member of our team will get in touch to discuss and integrate findings where concrete knowledge and/or evidence can be demonstrated.
