They have developed a methodology to facilitate gender mainstreaming in energy poverty reduction policies, in a final work of the Erasmus Mundus Master of Smart Cities and Communities.

This methodology uses public information to detect geographical areas at risk of energy poverty and provides information on the impact of gender on the energy vulnerability of each area.

In fact, several studies have shown that women have a higher risk of having difficulty accessing energy than men. For energy vulnerability reduction policies to take gender into account, tools are needed to assess the impact of gender on the factors involved in energy access (age, employment status, number of parents, etc.). ).

Therefore, using data collected separately by gender in publicly accessible databases, they have created a method capable of locating the most vulnerable energy areas and how it specifically affects women and men. In addition, the results obtained are represented on maps. This allows the identification of specific spatial patterns or correlations.
