AbstractEnergy is considered essential for Sustainable Human Development. However, rural electrification projects rarely include rural population’s aspirations, especially indigenous peoples’ aspirations. Using a capability and intersectionality approach we analyze the different visions of electrification of three different indigenous nationalities in the Ecuadorian Amazon: Achuar, Amazonian Kichwa and Siona. Through this approach, which is focused on expanding peoples’ freedoms, we explore how energy stakeholders’ development and energy visions are connected with Amazonian indigenous peoples’ aspirations. We argue that knowing what people value an also to consider intersectionality it is essential to foster energy-based project designs adapted to the different gender, territorial and ethnic realities and to indigenous communities’ diverse understandings of development.
