Energy transition will have significant impacts on how underserved, low- and moderate-income communities obtain energy. Innovative market-driven solutions and policies are emerging that promise access to clean, reliable energy for vulnerable communities—along with economic benefits, jobs, and GHG reduction. Some $15 billion of federal support is being targeted on financing clean energy projects for low- and moderate-income households. What are the financial impediments for clean energy finance for low- and moderate-income communities? How can private capital be mobilized to enable underserved communities to benefit from energy transition and can these innovative underwriting models for clean energy development standardize and accelerate to scale?
