FEMALE INSTALLERS

FEMALE INSTALLERS

Women are fewer in the energy sector, but we account for a wide experience in different aspects of energy: as researchers, teachers, women working on technical tasks, campaign managers, communicators, economists, members of the boards of directors in energy companies, administrations, etc. Nevertheless, and despite that wide experience, it is still difficult to find women working as installers. That is why it is essential to promote the creation of female references as well as to increase their motivation so that women will participate in training courses taught by women for women or for groups formed by men and women. Such training courses will enable them to set up solar photovoltaic installations and to increase their energy self-management.

We collaborate with the Network of Women for an Eco-feminist Energy Transition (https://www.facebook.com/RMx1TEE/posts/, www.energiaecofeminista.org), ONGAWA (www.ongawa.org) , ISF (Ingeniería Sin Fronteras) www.isf.es , ENDEF Solar (www.endef.com), Agotzenea (www.agotzenea.com).
