According to a study carried out by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), it is projected that by 2050 there will be around 40 million jobs directly related to renewable energy and energye fficiency worldwide. Women comprise half the world’s population and half of the workforce, hence their full inclusion is vital to ensuring that the new energy economy is based on the largest pool of talent, knowledge and skills.
On 8 March 2019, International Women’s Day, EU-ASE wants to celebrate the powerful, capable women that make sure every day that the energy efficiency voice is heard across all sectors of the European Union. We want to recognise them, their achievements and their leadership. And to remind the energy community that, without their work, progressive climate and energy advancements would not be possible.
“There’s no talking about future without progressive climate policies, same as there’s no talking about future without women.”
Monica Frassoni, EU-ASE President
