Gender equality in the energy transition

The clean energy transition is expected to contribute to more than one million additional jobs in the period up to 2030, trigger more than EUR 150 billion in investments in the clean energy sector, and ensure that vulnerable energy consumers are projected. With women representing only 22% of the full jobs in the energy sector and only 11% of the energy entrepreneurs, it is important the energy sector pro-actively supports equal changes and equality among the different genders.  The aim of the session is to discuss how gender equality can be supported in policy development and the implementation of the clean energy package. We are looking forward to a lively debate with the audience.
