  • Is the Price Right? Valuing and Compensating Distributed Energy Resources

    This webinar brought together leading research and policy experts to discuss ways to value and compensate distributed energy resources for their services, how these different approaches affect outcomes of interest, and where the policy discussions are headed. The recording is available here.

  • Advancing Energy Justice: Tools for Justice40 and Equitable Deep Decarbonization

    This two-day conference brought together federal agency staff working to implement Justice40 with researchers to discuss how academic research can be more responsive to communities’ needs. Speakers and attendees worked to identify implementation challenges and opportunities for Justice40 and other energy justice initiatives. The goal was to enable researchers to develop methods, interdisciplinary connections, and frameworks that can help make deep decarbonization efforts more consistent with the tenets of energy justice. The playlist of session recordings are available here. Panelists' slides are uploaded here as we receive them.

    Shalanda Baker (Deputy Director for Energy Justice, U.S. Department of Energy) provided keynote remarks, and dozens of experts rook part in panel discussions.

  • Distributed Energy Resources and Distribution Network Impacts

  • Building Power in the Public Sector—DEI and Anti-Racism at Environmental Jobs in Government

    We held a conversation about what city, state, and federal agencies that focus on environmental law are doing to support diversity and inclusion and the path forward for the governmental and private sector for advancing equity. Click here to see some highlights from the event.

  • Just Transition in the Power Sector—New Research and Policy Approaches

    We organized a 1-hour webinar to discuss new research on energy justice in the electricity space and how this work can help inform policy. The recording is available here.

  • Webinar: What’s Next in Climate Economics?

    Economics has transformed the way we understand and address climate change. In this Climate Week NYC panel discussion, experts will discuss economics advances and related policy changes that could be on the horizon, from more accurately calculating the costs of climate impacts to better serving environmental justice. Watch the recording here.

  • Getting the Gas Sector’s Energy Transition Underway

    A video recording of the event is available here.

    Thanks to states' decarbonization commitments and the availability of technological alternatives to gas-reliant appliances, the coming decades are likely to see radical reductions in natural gas use in residential and commercial buildings and the adoption of clean alternatives. The Institute for Policy Integrity, Columbia Law School's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, and NYU School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center will bring together officials from some of the states leading the way in this transition and ask them to share their distinct perspectives and insights about the path forward.

  • Building Power in the Environmental Movement Series (Part 3): Environmental Justice and New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act

    Environmental justice and equity concerns are central to many environmental matters and thus to a career in environmental law. As a case in point, New York’s new Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act contains key equity provisions, which must now be implemented. Join experts working on putting these provisions into effect to discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by the new law.
