In collaboration with ENERGIA
Energy-efficient off-grid appliances are essential to ensuring the advantages of electricity translate into measurable social and economic benefits for the millions of households without access to modern energy. Evidence from the Efficiency for Access Coalition and ENERGIA finds the benefits of modern energy are not reaching those who need it most. Decisions about the appliances households purchase are often gendered, with women having less of an influence than men.
This policy brief offers compelling evidence for why governments should include energy-efficient appliances a part of a holistic approach to achieving universal energy access and underscores the importance for addressing gender bias in incentive and program design. Recommendations for the donor community are also presented.
