What can we each do to advance equity and justice in our field of work? IEJ’s newest tool, the Justice in 100 Scorecard, answers this question specifically in the context of renewable energy standards, a policy framework now central to the transition to renewable energy.
IEJ’s newest report is meant to provide a flexible basis from which to expand systems of accountability regarding equity goals in the implementation of 100% renewable energy (or 100% clean energy) policy.
Recording: Join Shalanda H. Baker, IEJ’s Co-Founder and Co-Director, and author of the new book ‘Revolutionary Power: An Activist’s Guide to the Energy Transition,’ for a discussion and Q&A.
This policy brief provides recommendations for policymakers and advocates concerning utility shutoffs and consumer protections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These policy briefs address the deficiencies in data and reporting when it comes to California’s “Public Safety Power Shutoffs” and how they negatively impact medically vulnerable communities and environmental justice communities.
Join the Initiative for Energy Justice, Reclaim Our Power, The Utility Reform Network, and Power to Live for an interactive webinar discussing energy justice and California’s pre-emptive power shutoffs.
The Initiative for Energy Justice stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and we recommit ourselves to providing our network of advocates, activists, and policymakers with the tools and frameworks they need to push for a just energy transition that centers racial justice.
IEJ has released its newest tool: Utilities 101, a crash course in utilities viewed through an energy justice lens. Develop a better understanding of the United States’ utility system with our downloadable guide, video, and slide deck.
IEJ has released its first tool, the Energy Justice Workbook, which proposes a framework for justice-centered energy policies, and applies the framework to case studies in California and New York.
