Kleinman Center for Energy Policy – Equity, Justice, Democracy: A Clean Energy Future that Benefits All
Those most affected by planning and decision-making in the energy and utility sectors are typically not part of the process. Yet these decisions have a significant impact on household economic stability, community resilience, and the natural resources that affect health and well-being.
This creates an imperative for redefining the image of an energy stakeholder. By prioritizing broader public participation in the production, distribution, and regulation of our energy system, we can we account for differences in opportunities and burdens—and then address systemic inequities.
Join Visiting Scholar Chandra Farley for a discussion on building the framework for a community-led, equity-centered clean energy transition.
