Welcome to the Energy Equity Project

The Energy Equity Project (EEP) is a collaborative initiative housed at University of Michigan’s School for Environment and Sustainability. To bolster a just transition to cleaner, more resilient energy systems, the EEP developed the first standardized national framework for comprehensively measuring and advancing energy equity.

What is Energy Equity?

Energy equity recognizes the historical and cumulative burdens of energy system borne by frontline and low income communities. To eliminate these disparities, energy equity centers the voices of frontline communities in energy planning and decision making and ensures the fair distribution of clean energy benefits and ownership.
