Abstract

The aims of this paper is to assess the effect of diversification of energy sources on quality of life in Sub-Saharan African countries from 2000 to 2015. Using the Shannon Wiener, Stirling (1999-2000) index and several estimation methods, our results show that diversification of energy sources has a positive influence on the quality of life. However, these countries should promote the diversification of energy sources through a specific structural change allowing a policy of decentralization of power generation, because improving access to energy increase in life expectancy of the population.
