Read the full story from the University of Michigan.

To bolster a just transition to cleaner, more resilient energy systems, the University of Michigan’s Energy Equity Project has released the first standardized national framework for comprehensively measuring and advancing energy equity.

Energy equity recognizes the historical and cumulative burdens of the energy system borne by frontline and low-income communities. To eliminate these disparities, energy equity centers the voices of frontline communities in energy planning and decision making and ensures the fair distribution of clean energy benefits and ownership.
