United Nations has called on
businesses, governments, and
civil society to achieve Sustainable
Energy for All by 2030
Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) Initiative
The Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) Initiative was launched by the 23-government Clean Energy Ministerial in 2010. The 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 represent a quarter of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and also make up a significant portion of workers in the energy finance and policy fields. Closing the gender gap and increasing women’s participation and leadership in these fields are the goals of the U.S. C3E Initiative, led by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI).
