Women are often excluded from larger decision-making processes—a likely reason for their stronger presence in grassroots movements and ground-level solutions to climate change, particularly in the Global South. Three examples of women’s projects related to solar power show the benefits of decentralizing clean energy for everyone. Solar Sister is a women-led project that puts women at the center of the sales network that is bringing the clean energy of solar lamps and clean cooking stoves to the poorest and most remote communities in rural Africa. Solar Grannies is an Indian project focused on older women who are trained to be solar engineers by the Barefoot College in Rajasthan. Eden Full Goh is an American woman who invented a solar panel that efficiently uses sunlight throughout the day, while at the same time filtering and cleaning water. Photo credit: Greenpeace
