Scaling Sustainable Access Pathways for the Most Vulnerable and Hardest to Reach People

Knowledge brief
Women's empowerment in the energy sector

This working paper discusses the issue of how to extend energy access to the most vulnerable and marginalized communities through two approaches: bundling energy and social services, and scaling access through women's enterprises. It explores the innovative models and strategies that can help accelerate access for the most vulnerable and those in hard to reach areas. These are not the only approaches but rather represent a first step in shaping the work of the Gender and People-Centered Accelerator.
