Sponsored by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Energy Initiative, the award is a key component of the U.S. Department of Energy's implementation of the Clean Energy Education and Empowerment Initiative or C3E, a unique program designed to help increase the number of women engaged in clean energy disciplines, from science and academia, to industry, to policy, to advocacy.

Holloway was recognized for her contributions to clean energy and for serving as an inspiration to young women and men considering a career in the field.

The $10,000 award will be presented at the Women in Clean Energy Symposium at MIT in September. This invitation-only symposium, jointly hosted by the MIT Energy Initiative and the Department of Energy, is the culmination of a set of actions that, together, are part of the U.S. plan to implement C3E, a program of the 23-country Clean Energy Ministerial.

The international forum provides opportunities for energy ministers and other high level government officials to share and advance ideas on clean energy technologies, policies and goals.
