MASTER4all: a decision support model for roadmaps towards sustainable energy universal access for policymakers and utilities

A. González-García, I.J. Pérez-Arriaga, A. Moreno Romero

To build strategies for universal access to modern energy services, countries and practitioners require decision support tools that estimate the impact of their choices. MASTER4all provides with useful insights about the trade-offs between different technological, financial, environmental and energy policy alternatives specifically focused on the reduction of energy poverty and the transition from traditional to modern energy supply. The proposed model carefully analyses the national energy system starting with the consideration of multiple user profiles and progressing upstream through supply technologies, transportation and generation, up to the energy sources available. By taking into account detailed policy and technological options, the model enables a transparent and flexible direct policy effect modeling for Universal Access.


Keywords: modern energy universal access; energy poverty, electrification technologies, modern fuels, improved cook stoves, static optimization.
