TOPIC:

Gender in energy efficiency 

Energy efficiency in homes and businesses is a way to improve the lives of women, particularly because women often are responsible for a greater share of the burden of housework and childcare. Additionally, women’s economic activities, particularly those in the informal sector, are reliant on heat intensive processes, where efficiency measures can mean an increase in income as well as improvements in labor conditions.

This ‘discussion’ will provide an overview of the gender and energy efficiency nexus and present recommendations for evaluators of gender in energy efficiency projects, and gender and inequity perspectives in project evaluation.
