Best Practices in Accelerating Access to Clean Household Energy: A Collection of Evidence from wPOWER Partners

This report documents evidence-based best practices in the acceleration of household clean energy access, and highlights the involvement of women across the clean energy value chain. It also contains case studies by 34 wPOWER partner organizations who are working to close the gap between energy access, women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship. While these organizations tackle global challenges such as reducing indoor pollution through clean cooking solutions, or ensuring solar technologies’ affordability through flexible payment options, the implemented solutions are often context specific. By linking global problems to country-focused interventions, insights can be drawn to understand what critical factors could be potentially replicated in other parts of the world where similar problems occur.
