AABE DC’s Black Energy Awareness Month Series will include an “Expert Forum: Renewable Technologies in Minority Communities” taking place on Tuesday, Feb. 9 from 12 pm until 1 pm EST.
What is the industry doing to ensure energy-poor communities have equal access to modern energy services? How will companies ensure minority communities are not disadvantaged or disproportionately affected by the clean energy transition?
Our policy workshop will engage attendees in thought-provoking discussions examining the current state of energy poverty in minority communities. In breakout groups, experts will lead attendees in examining the existing barriers that bar minorities from benefiting from green technology and energy efficiency programs and provide recommendations for moving forward.
🌟 William Ellis, M.B.A., PMP® 🌟 (Pepco Regional Vice President of External Affairs, Pepco Holdings) will moderate the panel. Panelists include Gilbert Campbell (Co-Founder and CEO, Volt Energy), DeShaundra Jones, MBA, PMP (Customer Experience Strategist, WGL), and Karen Sistrunk (DC Office of the People’s Counsel, Deputy Director).
Please share the event! RSVP deadline is Jan. 30 at
