IRENA Conducting Survey of Gender and Renewable Energy

The International Renewable Energy Agency is conducting a survey to gather quantitative and qualitative insights into the current status of women’s participation in the renewable energy sector.

This survey also seeks to identify existing challenges and potential solutions to improve gender diversity. IRENA says 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.

People can take the survey as an individual or on behalf of their organization.

IRENA hopes organizations will provide information on gender distribution in their workforces and policies and measures they are implementing towards greater gender diversity.

Information provided by survey respondents will be processed and aggregated with other responses and serve as input for the forthcoming Women in Renewable Energy report to be published by IRENA. Personal data an individually identifiable information will not be publicly disclosed.

IRENA says the survey should not take longer than 10 minutes to fill out.

IRENA’s work is being supported by GWNET, REN21 and other institutions, according to a press release.
