Enabling diversity and inclusion in clean energy adoption
Like many other industrial sectors, the U.S. solar and wind industries have a mixed record of promoting gender and racial diversity across their workforces. While deliberate efforts to evolve and progress have been undertaken in recent years, much work remains to be done to make these industries more inclusive.
Across the U.S. clean tech sector, there is likewise a strong need to find ways of ensuring equal access to cleaner, more distributed forms of energy to low-income communities and communities of color.
In this paper, CohnReznick explores:
- Why clean energy access is critical for communities of color and low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities
- The financial tools available to expand clean energy access
- How developers can work within Opportunity Zones
- Innovative tax and policy changes that could bolster diversity and inclusion efforts
