Bringing Women to the Forefront of the Energy Transition

03 Mar 2022   |   1500–1630 IST

Access to technology can improve women’s productivity, alleviate poverty, and increase participation in income-generating activities. Distributed renewable energy (DRE) solutions deliver these multi-sectoral benefits. Supporting DRE roll-out initiatives can ensure energy for all (SDG7), contribute to gender equality (SDG5), whilst also decarbonise economies and addressing the challenge of climate change (SDG13). The recent policy framework launched by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy also promotes DRE technologies for livelihood applications.

In this session, we will look at how DRE technologies have the potential to improve women's livelihoods. The discussion would focus on interventions and solutions required to bolster the large scale rural developmental transformation, especially in the context of innovations, funding, end-user financing, policy and skilling.
