    New Energy Offers Big Opportunity For Women

    Help Wanted—Women In Renewable Energy. Saves The Planet And The Economy, Study Found

    Joan Michelson, September 6, 2021 (Forbes)

    “…[The massive and unexpectedly devastating damage from Hurricane Ida this past week] is a stark reminder that we must mitigate and slow climate change…[and] power the economy without adding carbon emissions…[The global energy transition offers the chance to create new jobs and reshape all aspects of how energy is produced and distributed…[The International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective (2019), estimated] jobs could grow to nearly 29 million in 2050…

    …[To drive] climate-friendly economic growth, the IRENA report states that we need more women in the renewable energy sectors…Currently, women hold only 32% of renewable energy jobs, which is better than in fossil fuels where women hold only 22% of jobs. But women still hold far fewer of the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs…[T]he renewable energy sector needs talent across its supply chain – from utilities to engineering firms, from independent power producers to start-ups, in policymaking, regulators, academic institutions and at the community level…

    …[M]any have been framing the August 2021 jobs report as disappointing based on expectations and the prior few months of very strong job growth…[but transportation and warehousing] added 53,000 jobs in August 2021…[and women hold] 25.1% of transportation jobs…versus 24.5% of them in August 2020…[More extreme weather events will require grid modernization, and women need to get] an equitable share of those jobs…” click here for more
