Abstract [en]

This study evaluates the energy security of households in informal settlements

through an energy security analysis. This is done as a part of the review process of

energy security analysis while giving recommendations towards reducing, replacing

and restricting. This data is gathered through quantitative survey of energy

consumption patterns of informal settlers in Metro Manila with 168 respondents. The

study concludes that a push for modern cooking fuels and legal options of electricity

suppliers is beneficial for energy security. This transition could to be encouraged by

lowering the cost for entry as well as the price per purchase to make these options

more affordable and attractive.
