GWNET launched Women for Sustainable Energy study

On the even of the international women’s day, the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET) has launched the study “Women for Sustainable Energy: Strategies to Foster Women’s Talent for Transformational Change.” This study was commissioned to answer the question ‘What can we do to increase women’s employment in the sustainable energy sector?’ and examines:

  • How well women are currently integrated into the corporate sustainable energy sector;
  • Which obstacles women encounter; and
  • What recommendations – building on existing experiences and emerging best-practice – can be put forward to promote women’s participation on par with men’s in sustainable energy.


Energy transitions are underway globally in a variety of shapes and forms, from large corporatised businesses to small community ventures. While the labour force in the sustainable energy sector is projected to grow significantly, achieving gender balance will need significant effort from all stakeholders.
