Energy Democracy

The World Bank says global energy prices will soar over 50% this year. Low-income households are hit the hardest as they spend three times more of their income on energy costs than non-low-income households. One movement that is working to tackle this energy burden and the climate crisis is energy democracy - taking energy generation and management out of the hands of corporations and putting it into the hands of communities. Democratizing energy is a central aspect of the just transition away from fossil fuels, and it's grounded in economic and social justice. Our guest is Crystal Huang, the national coordinator of the Energy Democracy Project.
