Exploring Equity for the Energy Industry
October 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT
Accelerating the clean energy transition presents opportunities to advance disadvantaged communities that have historically borne many of the costs and realized few of the benefits of energy system development. The equitable distribution of benefits depends on how power sector leaders shape electrification initiatives, energy efficiency programming, digital transformation efforts, grid modernization, and power generation transitions.
The Equitable Decarbonization Interest Group (EDIG), comprised of energy companies and industry stakeholders including academics, NGOs, regulators, and community leaders, is designed to facilitate sharing and development of leading practices; elevate leadership through a commitment to collaborative dialogue and research; explore metrics and screening tools to better understand environmental justice, energy burden, energy insecurity, energy access, and energy poverty; and facilitate stronger, more inclusive community advisory structures.
This three-part webcast speaker series open to all EPRI members and the public will provide an opportunity to learn from leading researchers and practitioners in various areas of equity and community engagement for decarbonization.
