The objective of this study is to examine the economic and social impact of the proposed energy subsidy reform policies on the Egyptian household, which started in July 2014 and is expected to be phased out in five years. In this context, the study quantify disparities in expenditure patterns on energy types, and transport across income/expenditure levels. It examines current levels and types of energy consumption by the gender of the head of the household. The findings of this study suggest further angels that may guide towards refined policy prescriptions to mitigate the negative consequences of restructuring energy subsidies, hence, predicting and avoiding future shortages and bottlenecks.
