Recording: Reaching Critical Climate Goals Requires Everyone, Mar 10, 2023

According to the latest UN Climate Report, we must rapidly reduce carbon emissions or the damage to our planet will be irreversible. Mitigating the impact of climate change will require widespread adoption of clean energy products at the consumer level. From rooftop solar to smart thermostats to electric appliances, we must put sustainable living within reach for every American. And fast.

This panel - moderated by a national energy reporter - will examine the approaches needed to engage all Americans in an equitable energy transition, including historically marginalized communities which have had less access to renewable energy. Panelists from the private and public sectors will discuss how policy, financing and technology can serve as building blocks to drive change.
