Creating a Process for Meaningful Stakeholder Engagement

The first step to centering equity metrics in energy efficiency programs is for policymakers to create a process for meaningful stakeholder engagement that allows for members of historically marginalized and/or excluded communities to inform and decide what metrics will be used to measure program success. This process should then inform any metrics used to center equity in energy efficiency program design, implementation practices, and employment opportunities. As explained in the Community Engagement to Ownership Spectrum, engagement from community members who are the most vulnerable provides greater knowledge, new solutions, and better procedures – all of which benefit not only the most vulnerable, but also everybody else.
