Alice Tianbo Zhang, assistant professor of economics at Washington and Lee University, wrote an article that was published in Nature Energy on June 16.  The article, “Evidence of multidimensional gender inequality in energy services from a large-scale household survey in India,” examines the differences in energy awareness, opinions and usage among intra-household inhabitants through a large-scale survey administered across 58 districts and six states in India.

Zhang’s research demonstrates that a “one-size-fits-all” approach of providing energy access may not meet the goal of sustainable energy for all, particularly as it relates to gender and socio-economic status.

Zhang’s article is available online at Nature Energy.
