Investing in women is not just a moral imperative – it is also a key part of the solution to meeting our climate pledges.
Women in Renewables Alliance is a global network of professional women working in the renewable energy industry. Our mission is to promote and champion greater gender equality and diversity in clean energy transitions. For more than 5 years the initiative has been connecting with individuals and institutions with a shared vision – to create an equal world where all talents can live their potential to the fullest.
Founded in 2018, Women in Renewables Alliances – formerly known as Women in Renewables Asia, is the first women’s NGO in Asia’s clean energy industry.
Today, we cultivate leadership and advance sustainable DE&I practices while supporting the implementation of global programmes at a regional level across Africa & the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Europe, and spans a spectrum of industry sub-sectors inclusive of solar, wind, and green hydrogen.
From Concept to Preparation
After a long plan and long-distance communication with team members from different countries, the nascent form of WiRA was born. In order to put this vision into reality, team members from four countries initiated the first preparatory meeting in 2017 and were full of ambition.
From Involve to Impact
In order to influence more female groups and spread this power, WiRA actively held public trainings and group seminars to integrate the balance of women power into the green development of renewable energy.
From Asia to Alliance
2022 marks a pivot moment for WiRA to rebrand its identity, as moving forward empowering women has evolved from a niche concept to a global campaign. To address the growing needs from the women network, in its 5th anniversary, Women in Renewables Asia formally renames as Women in Renewables Alliance, underpinning an organizational scale-up with tighter industry engagements and partnerships.
From Commitment to Action
In 2018, Women in Renewables Asia founded as the first women’s NGO in Asia’s renewable energy industry. Founding members pledged to fight for the equality of women power. WiRA's commitment is no longer just a commitment, but the power of action.
From US to YOU
