Centering Equity with Metrics (Full Report)

Historically marginalized and/or excluded communities experience disproportionate harms from our energy system. Research has shown that the harmful environmental impacts of the energy system are more likely to be concentrated in communities of color, and that these same communities are more likely to experience higher energy burdens causing them to spend more income on energy bills than the average household. Energy efficiency programs have the ability to help combat these injustices, if policymakers and program implementers take steps to center equity in program design and implementation.
