ISES is happy to support the IRENA study on Gender and Renewable Energy!
The International Solar Energy Society envisions a world with 100% renewable energy for everyone used wisely and efficiently and one of the biggest steps towards achieving this goal is the empowerment of women working in solar research, development and the solar industries.
As the largest international solar organization worldwide, ISES is committed to equality and sees it as one of the integral pillars to a successful energy transition. Women have held leading positions within ISES, as presidents, board members and team members - working as engineers, researches, developers they have shaped the ISES profile and together with their colleagues contributed to the success of ISES on a global scale.
ISES therefore fully supports the survey and invites you to participate to help gather this important information!
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. The findings will be integrated into the forthcoming IRENA report on Gender and Renewable Energy.

ISES will host two webinars on women in solar energy in 2018 and 2019 further introducing the study and its findings - for more information, please be sure to visit the ISES webinar homepage where all webinars will be announced!
