The Gender and Energy Innovation Facility: driving clean energy innovation in Kenya's energy sector through women's empowerment

21st July 2022

To bridge the gender gaps throughout the energy supply chain and in decision-making groups, Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS), ENERGIAEnDevHivos and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), launched the Gender and Energy Innovation Facility (GEIF) in July 2020. The Facility supports pilot projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Nepal that develop, test and evaluate innovative approaches to address the persistent gender energy challenges. As the Kenyan projects have recently come to an end of their pilot phase, we reflect on their achievements during that period, as well as the larger learnings from the GEIF. Read more about how the “Gender and Energy Innovation Facility” supported innovation in the Kenyan energy sector with a focus on women empowerment in the blog by the ENERGIA team.
