Arizona State University Lightworks – Energy Democracy and Empowerment

We need to reorganize the energy system to empower communities: What does that look like? How do we create benefits and support for communities, open up space for them to imagine and contribute to debates about energy futures, and find ways to diversify ownership of energy? How can we scale it nationally?
