Women in Solar Energy: Managerial, Operational and Artisanal


The overall objective of this study was to investigate the role played by women, youth and persons living with disabilities (PLWD) within the SAS energy value chain in Uganda. Specifically, the study was aimed at ascertaining the extent to which these groups are involved in the off-grid solar (OGS) energy value chain at managerial, operational and artisanal levels. By identifying the levels of inclusivity, the study aimed at assessing the extent to which women and marginalised groups, particularly youth and PLWD, are able to access opportunities along the value chain. Although there is some global and Ugandan literature on women’s participation in the OGS value chain, there are limited studies on youth participation and even much less information on PLWD. This study sought to address this knowledge gap.
