The OPEN Bulletin Technology Spotlight zooms in on a particularly interesting outcome reported by one of the 38 IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes.  

Advancing women's leadership in clean energy 

A new IEA Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) that will seek to promote leadership roles for women in clean energy, was announced at the 8th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) meeting in Beijing recently. The Clean Energy Education and Empowerment TCP (C3E TCP), which builds on the successful C3E initiative created by CEM member governments in 2010, will provide an international platform that aims to raise awareness, share best practices, establish a network for information exchange and commit to action across borders so that more women are encouraged and empowered to become leaders in clean energy. Sweden and Canada are founding country members while Chile, Finland and the United Arab Emirates are considing participation.
