Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Tania Jarjur, General Counsel of Yellow Door Energy, has been named Woman in Solar of the Year by the Middle East Energy Industry Association (MESIA) at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The MESIA Solar Awards, now in its tenth edition, is one of the energy industry’s longest standing and most trusted awards ceremonies in the region. It recognizes and celebrates exceptional talent and achievements in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) solar market. The awards are open to all, and the winners are selected by nine independent renewable energy experts from around the world.

Tania Jarjur, General Counsel of Yellow Door Energy, said: “Thank you MESIA and the judges for the Woman in Solar of the Year award. I am honored and humbled by the recognition.

As a legal professional, I am cognizant of the challenges our industry faces to address climate change and gender diversity. I am also excited about the opportunities ahead and firmly believe that together, we can advance the sustainable energy transition.”

The judges were impressed by Jarjur’s considerable contributions to the solar industry, namely negotiations of $150 million in funding and over 100 megawatts in contracts to bring solar to businesses in the region. Additional contributions included the development of a world-class legal department and continued efforts to mentor and empower women in the workplace.
