Women’s Leadership is Necessary for the Clean Energy Transition
The clean energy sector presents a wide range of entrepreneurial and business opportunities. In 2018, investment into clean energy topped $332.1 billion and employed over 10 million individuals. Renewable energy businesses provide significant development opportunities but to date, women have been underrepresented in the sector. Given the scale and significance of the energy sector, it is integral to ensure that women are meaningfully engaged in the sector and part of decision-making. This RALI Series paper identifies barriers to full engagement of women in the energy sector and identifies actions that can be taken to support women as business leaders and entrepreneurs.
