The twelfth annual C3E Women in Clean Energy Symposium and Awards will consist of plenary sessions, award presentations, and panel discussions. 

To achieve a rapid transition to an affordable and sustainable net-zero world, we must strategically increase momentum and address challenges. We will discuss how to preserve and strengthen policies to enable clean energy, address energy system inequities, speed up the technology journey from lab to market, and overcome present and future supply chain vulnerabilities to achieve net zero by 2050.

A full agenda with speakers, sponsors, and more information is available on the C3E website.
