Student Energy's Impact in 2020

The Year in Review

At the end of 2018, we set a goal to deepen each of our core programs: Chapters, the International Student Energy Summit, and the Energy Systems Map. We also set a goal to grow the organizational leadership team to bring on dedicated staff for communications and operations, along with added capacity for the Chapters program. Now, our team has grown to support with communications, operations, Greenpreneurs, and administrative work.

This expanded capacity has allowed us to utilize a developmental evaluation framework to dive deep into each of our core programs and ensure that they continue to expand and evolve, guided by the needs of our youth network. Our mission- guided work and additional staff capacity has also allowed us embark on some exciting new initiatives to support the core programs, such as the Leaders Fellowship and the Global Youth Energy Outlook, two major projects for 2020.

A core theme that emerged from Student Energy’s work this year is the importance of including diverse voices in the energy transition, to ensure that equity is a central focus in all global clean energy and climate solutions.

This was made abundantly clear with our first ever Indigenous Student Energy Summit, SevenGen, and was a theme that carried through to the Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation Forum where youth from 25 countries met with key policy decision makers, and then through to our International Student Energy Summit in London (SES2019).

"This is a relevant quote about the many cool things Student Energy has achieved this year. Hooray for us!"

An Important Thing We Have Done

We brought a group of young leaders from around the world to the annual Oil and Gas Climate Initiative CEO and Stakeholder Dialogue, where they asked tough questions, and engaged directly with representatives from thirteen of the world’s largest oil and gas companies. Delegates attended workstream sessions, whose topics included reducing methane emissions, natural climate solutions and CCUS. They also participated in a Youth Lunch roundtable, attended by executives and CEOs from OGCI and its member companies. Prior to the event, Student Energy led a 3-hour Preparatory Session for all delegates, which included workshops on how to tell their story, how to assert their lived experience and diverse forms of knowledge, how to tough questions, and how to support each other through networking and public speaking opportunities.

Looking Ahead

In February 2020 Student Energy will begin the research phase of the first Global Youth Energy Outlook. Working with ten regional youth coordinators around the world, Student Energy will gather the perceptions of young people on the world’s next ten years of the energy transition. Central to this research will be youth -defined priorities for action in policy, investment, technology and social systems change, highlighting young people’s inherent ability to think critically and holistically about energy challenges.
