Investing in women is not only a moral obligation but also a critical component of meeting our climate commitments.
Women in Renewables Alliance is a global network of professional women in the renewable energy sector, committed to promoting and advocating for greater gender equality and diversity in the transition to clean energy. For over five years, we have been connecting with individuals and institutions who share our vision of creating a world that provides equal opportunities for all to realize their potential to the fullest.
Established in 2018, Women in Renewables Alliance - previously known as Women in Renewables Asia - was the first women's NGO in Asia's clean energy industry. Today, we cultivate leadership, advance sustainable diversity, equity, and inclusion practices, and support the implementation of global programs at the regional level across Africa & the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Our focus spans a range of industry sub-sectors, including 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.
