Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2012
This description of Katherine Lucey's work was prepared when Katherine Lucey was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
While privatization of electricity generation and distribution has increased electricity supplies in Uganda, it has also increased tariffs so that low- and middle-income households cannot afford energy for basic needs. Katherine Lucey is addressing this issue by concentrating on women as key agents in distributing and consuming affordable, renewable energy products; thereby pushing women to drive change in the rural energy-space.
