Energy Justice Scorecard

The Energy Justice Scorecard provides a common language for frontline activists and policymakers to understand and evaluate energy policy. The scorecard also provides a framework for frontline advocates to advocate for energy policy rooted in equity. Similarly, the scorecard will offer policymakers an equity-based mechanism to create and evaluate energy policy.
