DESCRIPTION

The Energy Equity Project is working to create a framework for measuring equity across energy efficiency and clean energy programs among utilities, state regulatory agencies, and other practitioners, while engaging and centering Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities and frontline communities. An equity measurement framework, set to launch in beta form in 2022, will serve environmental and climate justice advocates, practitioners, regulatory agencies, and utilities to drive more equitable investments and outcomes in energy efficiency, distributed generation and storage (i.e. solar + batteries), demand response, electrification, and electric vehicle infrastructure. The presentation will offer an overview of EEP's work, including the energy equity issues it addresses in urban contexts, and an update on the framework being developed and the stakeholder engagement process.

This discussion is a part of Cities@Tufts' Spring 2022 Colloquium series. Shareable is partnering with Tufts University on this ongoing lecture series hosted by professor Julian Agyeman (co-chair of Shareable’s governing board) and Cities@Tufts. The series explores equity and diversity in urban planning and design and is made possible with support from The Kresge Foundation, Barr Foundation, Shift Foundation, and Shareable Donors.
Lectures are scheduled on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm (est) in the Spring and Fall semesters and feature a 30-min presentation and 30-min discussion. Find the upcoming schedule (and recordings of past events) at https://www.shareable.net/cities-tufts/.
In order to increase the accessibility of this content, Shareable produces a human-corrected transcript, audio podcast, and video from each presentation in addition to making it possible for anyone to join the sessions live (for free)
