gEneSys views energy transition as a socio-technological innovation ecosystem composed pf several interacting, interdependent and often competing subsystems: technological, social, environmental, political, etc. The reports listed on this page help explain the complex gendered power dynamics within and between the different subsystems.
2017 EUA Energy Transition and the Future of Energy Research, Innovation and Education: An Action Agenda for European Universities. Energy transition requires overcoming political, economic, behavioural, cultural, and territorial barriers. Social sciences and humanities are as important as engineering and natural sciences, contributing theoretical and conceptual frameworks, methodologies, and approaches. The report proposes a framework of 24 broad topics for master’s programmes in the energy field and analyses their content and value across several axes.
The 2019 CESC Blueprint Guide for Creating Gender-sensitive Energy Policies presents the critical components for developing a policy on gender mainstreaming for energy access, including different considerations around design, development, implementation procedures, critical success factors, challenges, and integrated strategies. It was commissioned by Power Africa through the Clean Energy.
The 2022 EU 8th Cohesion Report towards 2050 report presents the main changes in territorial disparities over the past decade and how policies have affected these disparities. It highlights the potential of the green and digital transitions as new drivers of EU growth. Despite the strong political commitment to achieving gender equality in the EU, large differences between women and men remain in various aspects of life, such as access to the labour market, pay and working conditions, and leadership in decision-making.
The 2022 OECD Supporting women’s empowerment through green policies and finance report focuses on how gender equality and environmental goals can be mutually reinforcing. It examines linkages and synergies between these two policy agendas and explores the role of green policies, finance, and infrastructure in supporting women’s empowerment and gender equality.
2023 UN and UNIDO Gender Equality in the Sustainable Energy Transition Guide contributes to a gender-responsive just transition to a sustainable energy future by identifying entry points for policies and measures that help ensure women can equally lead, participate and benefit from the growing opportunities in the gender-energy nexus.
