From February 14-16, 2017 the Alliance and the wPower Hub hosted an interactive workshop on women’s energy entrepreneurship in Nairobi, Kenya. The event brought together nearly 100 people from 14 countries in Sub Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, and Europe to discuss best practices and key challenges for scaling women’s entrepreneurship in the household energy sector globally. Over the course of two and a half days, practitioners, researchers, policy makers, donors, and entrepreneurs from over 65 organizations came together to share the latest research, innovative approaches, and technological solutions that the sector is employing, and a significant amount of time was dedicated to strategic discussions to understand the critical gaps that remain and how the sector can work towards advancing energy entrepreneurship and women’s empowerment.
