Recognition of renewable energy pioneer in Argentina

On 3 July 2019, the Government of Argentina recognized Gabriela Rijter, Coordinator of National and International Cooperation at the Undersecretariat of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, for her public service by awarding her as a Woman Pioneer. Gabi was one of six women awarded the “Mujeres Pioneras” award, given to women who have distinguished themselves in the public sector. 

Gabi (pictured on the screen below) also serves as the Vice President of the Association of Women in Sustainable Energy of Argentina (AMES). AMES was formed by 11 women working in the energy sector, and aims to increase female participation in renewable energy and STEM fields, in order to foster economic and socioeconomic benefits.

In August 2018, the Ministry of Energy published a renewable energy sector employment report authored by Gabi, which can be found here. The report breaks down the type and distribution of jobs across various renewable energy technologies and geographic regimes, including jobs generated by projects under the RenovAr tender framework and the MATER corporate PPA framework

Our sincere congratulations to Gabi for the well-deserved recognition of her contributions to sustainable energy in Argentina!
