Recently, she was selected as one of the Congress Future Energy Leaders by World Energy Council, nominated by the local chapter as part of FEL-100 programme. As a Congress Future Energy Leader, Şimal will have access to a range of opportunities, including networking events, peer conversations, and exposure to the Council's energy transition leadership tools. The Future Energy Leaders platform supports and promotes young professionals who share a commitment to addressing the urgent need to humanise energy. This global impact community aims to ensure a clear focus on work that delivers practical and interactive outputs in line with the Council’s mission and vision. 

The FEL-100 programme of the Council is a significant effort towards achieving just transition, which emphasizes the importance of a fair and equitable shift to a low-carbon economy that addresses the social and economic impacts of climate change, while supporting sustainable development. The energy sector plays a vital role in promoting resilient and sustainable communities as we move towards a low-carbon future. Needless to say, a fair and equitable transition not only helps to build support for climate action, but it also creates a more sustainable and just future for everyone.
