Celebrating and Recognizing Past and Present Women Awardees of the Clean Energy Education & Empowerment Program 

In 2018, the Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) symposium and awards recognized eight outstanding mid-career women who are advancing and implementing solutions that can transform our energy infrastructure and reduce emissions. Drawing upon our illustrious and distinguished C3E Ambassadors, we explored key aspects of storage and discussed the importance of emerging storage technologies to the overall energy ecosystem.  Industry leaders shared stories and experiences working in the clean energy industry, and provided advice to young women just beginning their professional careers and mid-career women with significant experience.  With C3E in its seventh year, exceptional past C3E Awardees shared with us what winning a C3E Award has allowed them to accomplish over the subsequent years, and how they have been able to inspire women and men in their own energy careers.
