Presently, Noreen is a co-editor of a book which focuses on the impact of energy transitions and climate change on future developments in Africa. She speaks and publishes regularly on topical issues in energy and ADR. She also guides young girls interested in the sector in developing road maps for achieving their career aspirations.
