This has been an impactful year for Clean Energy Group and our partners in advancing energy justice.
According to data released by the EPA, inefficient and expensive fossil fuel peaker power plants continue to be predominantly located near lower-income communities and disproportionately impact people of color.
The EPA’s proposed regulation for greenhouse gases emitted by power plants reveal the heavy influence of the fossil fuel industry.
There are several issues with the EPA’s proposed rules for fossil fuel-fired power plants, the biggest being the inclusion of carbon capture and storage and hydrogen blending as Best Systems of Emissions Reduction pathways for new power plants as well as existing larger capacity plants.
A new year is upon us. This will be a big year for Clean Energy Group (CEG). We were founded 25 years ago, back in 1998 when solar and wind were more of a hopeful concept than the disruptive reality they have become today. Considering the events of last year, 2023 looks to be a…
The IRA provides the financial incentives and tools that level the playing field between legacy fossil-fuel peakers and alternatives that do not emit localized pollutants into the communities that surround them.
To help visualize the racial and economic disparities of fossil peaker power plants, CEG released a new mapping tool highlighting the demographic characteristics of surrounding communities.
Looking back at the major stories of 2021 that have the biggest implications for solar+storage, a clear theme emerged: big, centralized, dirty power failed, and smaller, cleaner, more nimble and resilient power gained traction.
Like Hurricane Katrina and numerous storms before it, Hurricane Ida demolished Louisiana’s outdated, fossil-fuel dependent energy system. It’s time for Louisiana leadership to prioritize resilient solutions over continued fossil-fuel investment.
How can we protect vulnerable people when the power goes out? Getting it right will be a key energy equity test for the Biden administration’s infrastructure plan.
