Climate Adaptation and Energy Justice at the Federal Level

December 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Unfortunately this virtual event has been cancelled.

Join the Climate Adaptation Forum for a special edition conversation with Shalanda Baker, Secretarial Advisor on Equity and Deputy Director for Energy Justice at the United States Department of Energy. A former member of the CAF community, Deputy Director Baker will share insights from her time in Washington and the key themes to pay attention to in the coming months. This one-hour event will consist of a presentation and moderated discussion.

Shalanda H. Baker is the Deputy Director for Energy Justice in the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity at the U.S. Department of Energy. Prior to her appointment, she was a Professor of Law, Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. She has spent over a decade conducting research on the equity dimensions of the global transition away from fossil fuel energy to cleaner energy resources. She is the author of over a dozen articles, book chapters, and essays on renewable energy law, energy justice, energy policy, and renewable energy development. In 2016, she received a Fulbright-Garcia-Robles research fellowship to study climate change, energy policy, and indigenous rights in Mexico. She is the Co-Founder and former Co-Director of the Initiative for Energy Justice (www.iejusa.org), an organization committed to providing technical law and policy support to communities on the frontlines of climate change. Her recent book, Revolutionary Power: An Activist’s Guide to the Energy Transition (Island Press 2021), argues that the technical terrain of energy policy should be the next domain to advance civil rights.
