WEI: Forward In Energy Forum: Energy and Housing Justice
February 23, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Communities of color more susceptible to the impacts of pollution and climate change, and these communities face a higher burden for energy costs. People of color are more likely to reside near major sources of air pollution, are more vulnerable to heat, flooding, and other climate impacts, and are less able to retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient or produce solar energy.
WEI discuss the factors lead to these inequities, and how we can improve access to affordable, sustainable, and resilient housing.
