IRENA is undertaking a global survey on gender and renewable energy

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), with support from GWNET, REN21 and other institutions, is undertaking a global gender and renewable energy survey.

The objective of the survey is to gather quantitative and qualitative insights on the current status of women’s participation in the renewable energy sector, existing challenges and potential solutions to improve gender diversity.

The findings from the survey will contribute to addressing the data and knowledge gap on gender in renewable energy, and inform policy making to ensure that the energy transition is inclusive and benefits from a wider pool of talent.


This survey is divided is two categories, individuals and organisations. If you are an individual working in the sector, IRENA wants to gather insights on the challenges and barriers faced in attracting and retaining women in the workforce, as well as potential solutions. If you are an organisation working in the sector, the objective is to understand the gender distribution in the workforce and the policies and measures that companies are implementing towards greater gender diversity.


The survey is available here.
