Why advancing Women in Energy is so important

The energy transition is a major joint project and can only succeed if we join forces and all of us actively shape it. The expansion of renewable energies is leading to the decentralization and democratization of energy systems. Digital technologies are opening up opportunities for completely new business models. New jobs and role models are emerging in diverse fields such as green entrepreneurship, community management, research and innovation in social science. As an Embassador, I want to support women who are breaking new ground as leaders in the energy industry and thus advancing the energy transition.
