Data for the Public Interest: Utility and Regulatory Possibilities for Empowering Energy Equity with Data

March 11 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Public utility commissions and electric utilities across the country are increasingly incorporating equity considerations in their decision-making processes: ensuring that the costs and benefits of energy infrastructure are fairly distributed among customers without disproportionately impacting any subsets of ratepayers. For example, following the passage of the Clean Energy Transformation Act in Washington State, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission recently adopted rules requiring regulated utilities to consider equity in purchasing practices and in the state’s transition to clean energy. As equity becomes a key factor in energy decisions, regulators, utilities, and other stakeholders are exploring and considering strategies to leverage data in a way that best serves over-burdened and vulnerable populations. This webinar will explore approaches to the collection, reporting, and analysis of energy sector data to empower energy equity.

The discussion will address questions such as: – How can regulators define and assess equity in the energy sector? – How can we measure equitable progress towards decarbonization? – What are the ramifications of utility data reporting requirements?
