Established in June 2017, under the leadership of Canada, Italy and Sweden, the Clean Energy Education and Empowerment Technology Collaborative Program (C3E-TCP) aims to strengthen the role of women in the clean energy sector which remains one of the most gender imbalanced sectors. Participants of the November 2017 Women in Clean Energy Side Event, held prior to the IEA Ministerial meeting in Paris, agreed that there was an urgent need to improve the knowledge on workforce, skills and education of women in activities related to clean energy.

Removing barriers toward women’s active participation in sectors which have traditionally been occupied by men, such as the clean energy sector, requires the implementation of concrete actions in specific areas, such as: knowledge building, career development, awards programmes, dialogue.
State-of-the-art knowledge represents a key point in the decision making process. Currently, there is only limited gender-disaggregated data regarding the clean energy sector and there is limited knowledge about how to make the sector more gender balanced. The C3E TCP will collect information on women’s participation in the clean energy sector workforce and develop indicators to measure progress.

This workshop, hosted by Italy in collaboration with the C3E TCP and the IEA, aims to share experiences on data collection and methods of assessment to analyse gender diversity as well as the employment opportunities to women offered by the energy transition. The involvement of Governments, international organisations, private companies, and education and research institutions allows us to identify priorities and recommendations to overcome the gender gap in the clean energy sector.
