EUSEW Energy Days: A gender lens on energy poverty

On 20 September 2022, WECF International in cooperation with BayFOR invites you to the event "A gender lens on energy poverty" within the framework of EUSEW. BayFOR will give a presentation on the topic "Energy poverty in research and innovation".

Millions of people in the European Union are affected by energy poverty - with women and marginalised groups being disproportionately affected. This is not only exacerbated by the current energy market crisis, but also when gender inequality is compounded by age, class and race.

The combination of rising energy, transport and food prices increases the risk of fuel poverty. This is because it can lead to a worsening of gender inequalities, as energy poverty among women can be related to their physiological and health situation as well as to their economic and social status.

All these dimensions - especially when combined - put women at higher risk of energy poverty. It is therefore important to take a closer look at the relationship between energy poverty and gender in order to discuss solutions for a gender-equitable energy transition.
