One of the unique opportunities from decarbonization is to reorganize the energy system to empower, support, and benefit communities. How can we achieve that goal? How do we create space for communities to imagine and contribute to debates about energy futures and find ways to diversify ownership of energy? How can we scale programs for national impact? This webinar addresses these questions.
