The goal of the Symposium is to provide women in clean energy with a range of perspectives on clean energy challenges and opportunities. It also provides a forum for networking. It is our hope that the symposium will help build a sustained national and international community of professionals dedicated to advancing the careers and goals of women in clean energy. The 2014 Women in Clean Energy Symposium theme will be Urban Strategies for a New Energy Future.
