Energy access is a critical enabler to development because it transforms productivity at home and at work. Renewable sources of energy could be time saving and improves health outcomes of women. Further, promoting women’s participation as decision-makers in energy sector and stakeholders in energy initiatives would be critical to promote gender mainstreaming in the sector.
Addressing gender issues in energy interventions extends the potential to contribute towards achieving the SDGs, including poverty alleviation (SDG 1), improved health and well-being (SDG 3), gender equality (SDG 5), good livelihoods and economic opportunity (SDG 8), sustainable urban environments (SDG 11) and climate action (SDG 13) and ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all (SDG 7).
