tPrevious studies on improved cookstove adoption in developingcountries use cross-sectional data, which make it difficult to con-trol for unobserved heterogeneity and investigate what happens toadoption over time. We use robust non-linear panel data and haz-ard models on three rounds of panel data from urban Ethiopia toinvestigate the determinants of adoption and disadoption of elec-tric cookstoves over time. We find that the prices of electricity andfirewood and access to credit are major determinants of adoptionand transition. Our findings have important implications for poli-cies aiming at promotion of energy transition and reduction of thepressure on forest resources in developing countries.
