Gender disparity is a persisting issue in the clean energy sector. Barriers exist that dissuade women from pursuing careers and leadership roles in the sector. There is a dire need to create awareness among public and private authorities on the added value and need to promote women’s leadership and participation in the development of the clean energy sector. As we are moving towards seizing the opportunities of energy transformation, creation of a gender-responsive clean energy ecosystem with growing opportunities for women to formally participate at all levels in the energy sector will be pivotal.
