Toward a Climate Justice Energy Platform: Democratizing Our Energy Future

Al Weinrub and Anthony Giancatarino

This new report from the Local Clean Energy Alliance and the Center for Social Inclusion lays out a vision for a democratized energy future that shifts the ownership of energy systems from corporations to communities. The authors propose a decentralized renewable energy platform, guided by principles of healthy communities, family-sustaining livelihoods, workforce development, and six other justice and sustainability values. The report outlines governance, finance, labor, and investment strategies to support this transition and provides a compendium of model policies and programs.
