Closing the gender gap and increasing the participation, leadership, and success of women in clean energy fields are the goals of the U.S. Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) Initiative, a unique partnership between the Department of Energy, MIT Energy Initiative, Stanford Energy, and Texas A&M Energy Institute. Part of C3E is an Awards program, to recognize and honor midcareer women leaders who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and accomplishments in clean energy across diverse fields.
Nominations are solicited nationwide and vetted by the Ambassadors. Awardees are announced at the annual U.S. C3E Women in Clean Energy Symposium, where they receive high-level recognition and a cash prize!
