Wind energy: A gender perspective
International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)
Rabia Ferroukhi, Michael Renner, Celia García-Baños
Wind energy, like other parts of the global energy industry, remains largely male-dominated. Yet opportunities exist to improve the gender balance, make greater use of women’s skills, and entrench wind power as part of an inclusive and sustainable energy system for the future.
This brief tracks the presence of women across the wind energy value chain. Based on a survey of more than a thousand individuals and organisations, it examines female representation, gender-inclusive policies, and perceptions of gender bias in the industry.The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) conducted the survey jointly with the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition (GWNET).
