Energy Democracy Models

What are the mechanisms driving forward Energy Democracy? The demand and development of community-driven and owned clean energy has followed a number of models: from small community-based projects, to worker-owned and multi-stakeholder cooperatives, to community-shared solar, to municipal-level programs like Community Choice Aggregation. How does the community, especially low-income people and people of color, become organized and empowered through these different models? This panel will share their work with a variety of successful community-driven models.
