The Energy Optimist Podcast: Centering Energy Equity in Utility Regulation

Today we’re talking about energy equity. This is not just a term used in legislation and policy briefs–it is a concept that represents tangible and often significant impacts on people’s lives, livelihoods, and wellness. Increasingly, advocates and regulators are coming to understand that energy equity is a core component of energy regulation as a whole, not merely a policy goal to be addressed separately from the governance of the energy system. We talk with Melanie Santiago-Mosier, Equitable Energy Transition Advisor at The Nature Conservancy, to learn about how equity fits into the clean energy transition, how you can center it in your work, and where you can learn more about this concept and related best practices.
