Climate Data for Community Action

Episode 24

A new report released by DataKind shows that energy equity issues in the U.S. are predominantly driven by household income, with few options for most households to use less expensive and more sustainable energy sources. The Energy Equity report lays out options for data science to improve research that would provide better data to regulators. But even with the right data, how can we ensure that it is being used to inform equitable policies across communities? And what does this look like on the ground? We are bringing together a group of experts to discuss!

This session was broadcasted on Wednesday, May 3rd at 2:00pm ET / 1:00pm CT live across The Rockefeller Foundation’s social media pages TwitterFacebookLinkedIn and YouTube.
