Jobs Gender, Decentralized Renewables

Factsheet: Decentralized Renewable Energy can help to address gender gaps

Worldwide millions lack access to modern energy services necessary for economic and social growth. Energy poverty takes a great toll on women, as they face more barriers to electricity access and bear many of the lack of access costs—from unpaid time and labor, to gather cooking fuel and other household needs, to health risks associated with indoor smoke. The Decentralized Renewable Energy (DRE) sector has the potential to not only combat energy poverty but also enable female empowerment by freeing up their time for more productive uses and improving their overall well-being.
