What does equity mean in the context of renewable energy? What can you do to facilitate equitable access to the benefits of renewable energy? How can you encourage inclusivity in design and construction? This session will serve as a primer to these concepts. Presenters will provide overviews of frameworks and resources you can use to advance equitable outcomes of your projects, and will share examples of real-world implementation from their experiences working with projects and communities throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
