Our Mission

Our mission is simple: to inspire women from a young age to consider jobs in energy, and to help cheer on and empower those already in the industry to grow.


Energy jobs are increasing in the UK and further afield— 400,000 new jobs will be needed for the ‘Net Zero Workforce’ by 2050. It's time to start powering the future. 

When you think of jobs for women, the energy industry might not immediately spring to mind…but we want to change that. This journey towards greener, cleaner, more secure energy means that there has never been a better time to consider a career in the industry. We want to help those considering a career in energy get their first role, while also helping women already in the industry to collaborate with each other, building a community of empowered women in energy.

POWERful Women

This campaign is fuelled by POWERful Women. POWERful Women is working to help build a gender-balanced, diverse and inclusive energy industry.


We are a professional initiative, based at the Energy Institute, that seeks to address the continued underrepresentation of women at the top of the UK energy industry and in the leadership pipeline. Our goal is for women to be in at least 40% of middle management and leadership roles in the UK energy sector by 2030.
