Although the access to clean sources of energy is not a sufficient condition for poverty alleviation, it constitutes absolutely a necessary condition. In this way, this article analyzes the determinants of urban household's access to LPG in Côte d'Ivoire using a multinomial logit model by accounting for poverty dimension. The study reveals that the variables like income, the relative price gas/charcoal, LPG availability, education, LPG stove ownership are the key elements of an energy transition policy. The compensation to the poor to help them switch to LPG is at least 60% of the "energy poverty line" which is 14472 fcfa.
