Leading with Equity and Justice in the Clean Energy Transition

Download

By Jamal Lewis, Ruth Ann Norton, Catherine Klinger and Noah Goldmann

The authors outline strategies to advance a just transition to clean energy in residential buildings, with a focus on advancing racial and health equity and strategies that address the legacy of intentional disinvestment in Black and Brown communities. Several federal programs that are key to a just and equitable clean energy transition are highlighted, including DOE’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), HUD’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH), HHS’s Low-Income Heating and Energy Assistance Prorgram (LIHEAP), and a federally administered Clean Energy Accelerator.
