This mapping tool and other resources have been created to support a shift in program design and delivery to an approach that better responds to the needs of low and moderate income (LMI) households and others who have been historically underrepresented in ‘first generation’ clean energy programs.
Using the Energy Poverty and Equity Explorer tool, will help with this shift in practice by shedding light on: 1. How and what community data is analyzed and applied to climate action planning, policies and programming. 2. How and who is engaged in the community for co-design and implementation of clean energy programs. 3. How programs are designed, structured, resourced, and evaluated with a priority to achieve social and economic outcomes while pursuing deep emissions reductions.
