ENERGIA’s Principal Investigator for the Gender and Energy Research Programme was appointed full professor “Gender and Energy” at the University of Twente, as of December 1, 2015.
Ms. Clancy’s research has focused, for 30 years, on small-scale energy systems for developing countries particularly the influence in households and small informal sector enterprises. Since obtaining her PhD in engineering (biofuels in engines), her research interest moved more towards social, particularly gender, and environmental issues. In this context, Ms. Clancy is one of the founder members of ENERGIA and has been one of ENERGIA’s Technical Advisors ever since.
The chair of “Gender and Energy” is part of the faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences, Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability (CSTM).
