It is often said that empowering women is the key to changing the world. As the majority grassroots beneficiaries of energy access programmes to provide clean cooking fuel, women in India are at the forefront of India’s rapid energy transition. However, women account for only 11 per cent of the workforce in the rooftop solar (RTS) sector in India, significantly less than the global average of women in the overall renewable energy (RE) sector, at 32 per cent (IEA and CEEW 2019). In this blog we explore how to overcome this challenge.
