Achieving just social and economic participation in the energy system, while remediating social, economic, and health burdens in climate-impacted communities.
Revolutionizing our energy system by centering communities requires energy justice to address power inequities and leveraging collective community voices to call for equitable climate policy.
Why is energy justice important?
Energy justice demands equity in social and economic participation in the energy system. It calls for remediating social, economic, and health burdens for those disproportionately harmed by the energy system. Our existing energy system maximizes profit for investor-owned utilities while often disregarding the frequent negative impacts it has on climate-impacted communities.
