This report investigates gender equity throughout the global renewable energy sector based on a large-scale survey of employees, companies and institutions. The findings of the survey highlight that there are still significant barriers to women’s full participation and utilisation in the industry. One of the main barriers to entry, alongside social and cultural norms, was a lack of skills and gender-specific training opportunities. One of the main recommendations in the report is to tailor training and skills development programmes to a range of needs. Also, companies can provide additional points of entry that incorporate development opportunities, such as internships and co-op programmes.
