Distributional Equity Analysis for Energy Efficiency and Other Distributed Energy Resources: A Practical Guide
State legislators and regulators are establishing new goals and processes to promote energy equity. With rapid changes in consumer technologies like energy-efficient heat pumps, rooftop solar and battery storage, equity goals related to distributed energy resources are increasingly important.
The report, Distributional Equity Analysis for Energy Efficiency and Other Distributed Energy Resources: A Practical Guide, describes a seven-stage framework for answering the question, How do utility investments in distributed energy resources impact priority populations? The report builds on the conceptual distributional equity analysis frameworks developed by the National Energy Screening Project and the Energy Equity Project
