The U.S. C3E Awards recognize mid-career women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and accomplishments in clean energy. The awards, underwritten by MITEI, the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy, and Texas A&M Energy Institute, are made in eight categories (Advocacy, Business, Education, Entrepreneurship, Government, International, Law & Finance, and Research) at the annual symposium. Each Awardee receives a cash gift of $8,000 to further the goals of the C3E Initiative.
The deadline to submit nominations is Wednesday, April 10 at www.C3Eawards.org.
*The Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) Initiative was launched in 2010 by the Clean Energy Ministerial, a global consortium with representation from 24 countries plus the European Commission. In 2016, the International Energy Agency agreed to host the C3E Secretariat. The C3E initiative was born out of recognition that the ideas and talents of all members of society are essential to meeting our future clean energy challenges. Women make up substantially less than half of the workforce in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields and across the clean energy sector. Closing the gender gap and increasing women’s participation and leadership in these fields are the goals of the U.S. C3E program, which is led by the U.S. Department of Energy in collaboration with the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI), the Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy, and the Texas A&M Energy Institute.
