The annual U.S. C3E Awards recognize rising leaders in Advocacy, Business, Education, Entrepreneurship, Government, International, Law and Finance, and Research. Eligible nominees are mid-career women working in the clean energy sector who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Each winner receives $8,000 and national recognition.

Closing the gender gap and increasing the participation, leadership, and success of women in clean energy fields are the goals of the C3E Initiative. The Department of Energy collaborates with the Texas A&M Energy Institute, MIT Energy Initiative, and Stanford Energy’s Precourt Institute for Energy to implement the C3E program.
