This grant supports training and mentoring efforts by the University of California, Berkeley’s Initiative on Equity in Energy and Environmental Economics. The goal is to attract a more diverse group of students to the study of energy economics by providing education and training centered on questions associated with distributional equity and just transitions. Funded activities include a mentoring program for undergraduate students of color interested in the distributional dimensions of energy economics, a competitive grant program that will fund ten graduate research projects on issues related to energy equity, and an initiative to hire an underrepresented postdoctoral scholar of color working in energy economics.  Additional grant funds will support a series of networking and convening events to build community across all levels of this initiative and connect supported students to one another and with energy economics faculty at Energy Institute at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business—one of the leading energy economics centers in the country—and Berkeley’s Opportunity Lab.
