The Biden Administration has committed to supporting community-based environmental justice (EJ) organizations as a central tenet of its climate agenda. Dr. Tony Reames’ appointment as the Department of Energy’s Senior Advisor on Energy Justice is proof point of the administration’s commitment to ensuring a just energy transition.

Dr. Reames joined Pecan Street’s CEO Suzanne Russo to discuss his role at DOE and his vision for how we achieve a just energy transition.

The interview is a product Pecan Street’s Center for Race, Energy, and Climate Justice, which aims to leverage our decade of energy data collection and analysis to highlight issues and opportunities that are key to achieving fairness and equity in the energy sector.
