Main author (HEDON member)

Abstract
Solar Sister is a social enterprise improving last mile energy access with a gender inclusive approach in Uganda, Nigeria and Tanzania utilising a model that recruits, trains, and supports entrepreneurs selling clean energy technology directly to their communities. This article illustrates that Solar Sister focuses on empowering women, key users of energy technology and most impacted by its scarcity or availability. The organisation’s approach offers some lessons for other players in the energy access sector on the importance of deliberately reaching out to and creating opportunities for women in the upstream and downstream energy value chains.
