The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is hosting a live Women in Clean Energy Chat tomorrow, June 27, at 1pm EDT. The chat will take place on Twitter with participants following along using the #askEnergy tag.


Panelists participating in the live chat include:


  • Kateri Callahan, the president of Alliance to Save Energy, will be tweeting from the @ToSaveEnergy account.
  • Melanie Kenderdine, the executive director of the MIT Energy Initiative, will be chatting from the @MITNews account.
  • Rachel Tronstein, a senior advisor with the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, will be tweeting from @Energy.

Although panelists will be answering questions asked during the live chat, participants are encouraged to submit questions beforehand to the @Energy Twitter account. Alternately, questions can be submitted to the email address or on the DOE Facebook page.


The Women in Clean Energy chat is part of the DOE’s Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) Initiative. C3E is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy and MIT that is designed to bring more women into the clean energy fold, advancing the nation’s clean energy economy while providing new role models for young females across the country.
