Welcome to the Yale Clean Energy Future podcast.
Our podcast was created with the idea that information about the clean energy transition should be in the hands of the public. We believe that if executed with equity and inclusivity at its core, the clean energy transition can play a key role in achieving justice, prosperity, and human dignity for all.
Given the current context of the Covid-19 pandemic and recent transition of U.S. presidential power, we talk about the impacts of the pandemic on the clean energy transition as well as the opportunities to “Build Back Better.”
At the Center for Business and the Environment at Yale (CBEY), our mission when it comes to clean energy, is to inspire and educate interdisciplinary leaders to accelerate the deployment and financing of clean energy. This podcast is one of the many tools in our toolbox to foster greater dialogue, educate the general public on energy, justice, and the transition, and a great excuse for us to keep learning from experts at Yale and beyond.
So come learn with us and join us as we talk to experts, unpack studies, and figure out how to create a just, equitable, and clean energy future.
