Description: Die Energiewende ist weiblich (the Energy Transition is Female) organised by DigitalEnergy4All, was another effort to increase women’s participation in one of the crucial paths we are undertaking: the energy transition.
With the expansion of renewable energy and the transformation of energy supply into a sustainable energy system, new challenges and roles will arise. In addition to technical issues, these serious changes are also associated with social challenges. The transition from a central structure to a decentralised democratic and regional market opens up new opportunities for innovative power.
The three primary goals highlighted during the event are as follows:
- Making women in the energy transition visible
- Professional exchange on the subject of the energy transition from other perspectives
- Networking for women in the energy transition
GWNET Executive Director, Christine Lins, re-emphasised GWNET’s efforts in including more women in a male-dominated energy sphere, by promoting gender-sensitive action to achieve this goal. Christine also reiterated that GWNET’s efforts align with the collective ones, where GWNET strives to achieve a fair yet inclusive energy transition.
