Between May and July 2024, Efficiency for Access will run the ‘Powering Inclusion’ campaign, aiming to promote equitable access to high-performing appliances for all individuals, enhancing their daily lives and improving livelihoods.

During this campaign, Efficiency for Access will create and share content on our website, social media channels, and newsletters. Additionally, we will collaborate with partner organisations to co-develop and cross-promote content on their platforms.

The campaign draws from the Low Energy Inclusive Appliances (LEIA) programme’s Theory of Change, which champions inclusive energy access. Campaign content is centered around four key themes:

  1. Poverty and frontline communities: Underscoring the role of off- and weak-grid appliances in alleviating energy poverty and empowering frontline communities to build climate-resilient futures.
  2. Gender and women: Showcasing how empowering women with access to high-performing efficient appliances drives social and economic progress and paves the way for gender equality.
  3. Humanitarian and displaced people: Emphasising how access to durable off- and weak-grid appliances is a vital lifeline for displaced communities, helping rebuild lives in the process.
  4. Green jobs: Amplifying that the growing off- and weak-grid appliances sector is a future employer, providing job opportunities for young people to sustain their livelihoods.
