Shauna Beland and Yasmin Yacoby, Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources; Abbe Ramanan, Clean Energy States Alliance. Sponsored by Clean Energy States Alliance. More information here.
The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) together with the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER) has authored a new guide for states on collaborating with CBOs. The guide covers the preliminary steps and training state agencies can undertake prior to pursuing collaboration with CBOs, how to structure community engagement, and how to build long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships. Case studies highlight successful state/CBO collaborations. The guide provides a helpful primer and additional learning resources on environmental and energy justice, as well as an appendix on the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion. In this webinar, speakers from CESA and OER will provide an overview of the guide and discuss case studies and best practices.
