The first important step to change is having a solid understanding of the current landscape. At present, there is limited gender-disaggregated data regarding the energy sector and inadequate knowledge about how to make the sector more gender diverse. It is critical for countries and organizations to join efforts to improve systematic data collection in order to understand trends and identify actions aimed at increasing women’s presence and participation in the energy sector.
The purpose of this workstream is to collect existing data and improve knowledge on gender equality in the energy sector. The objectives of this workstream are to support the development of policies and actions that may accelerate gender equality and improve equal opportunities for men and women in the future. Particular attention is paid to sharing expertise and good practice policies at international and national levels.
All participants contribute to the Data Collection, Knowledge Building and Policies workstream, with Italy serving as the lead country and IEA as coordinator.

The C3E TCP intends to play an active role by providing the necessary support for the implementation of an information system to monitor the current state of the sector, implement actions, and track progress. In this document, you will find the most recent data we have gathered from member countries. This knowledge could support the development of policies and actions that may accelerate gender equality and enable equal opportunities for men and women in the future.
