RESPECT proposes a modernized framework for how utilities make investments and decisions, so that we can build the energy systems necessary at the speed required to address the climate crisis. RESPECT imagines a world where investments in our energy systems are aligned with state goals to address climate pollution, further environmental justice, and lower consumer costs. By proposing two simple, but far-reaching reforms, RESPECT avoids conflicts of interest and redirects the focus of energy system planning towards benefits for consumers and addressing the climate crisis.
Join the authors for an in-depth look at this new framework.
Acadia Center intends the RESPECT report to spark a discussion about how to ensure that utility investments and decision-making are aligned with state policy goals and welcomes the opportunity to share these ideas with you.
