"Thirty distinguished women, three energy ministers, and eight governments launched the Clean Energy Education & Empowerment (C3E) women's initiative at the first Clean Energy Ministerial to advance women's participation in the clean energy revolution."

The initiative reflects a "shared commitment among partner governments to advance women's leadership in the clean energy field, where women's perspectives and contributions are too often absent. The partners recognized that it is to each country's economic and social benefit to harness all talent in driving the clean energy revolution forward. Each C3E country is pursuing nationally appropriate models and building on existing programs to sustain its commitment within the C3E initiative."
