LA100 Equity Strategies

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


In the Los Angeles 100% Renewable Energy Study (LA100), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that the City of Los Angeles can achieve its ambitious goal of reliable, 100% carbon-free energy as early as 2035. While all communities will benefit from air quality and health improvements of clean energy, improving equity in participation and outcomes requires intentionally designed equity strategies. To plan for a clean energy future that benefits all Angelenos, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), NREL, and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) partnered on the LA100 Equity Strategies project. In an innovative, community-informed approach, the LA100 Equity Strategies project integrated robust social science research techniques with rigorous data analysis - and incorporated what community members themselves know is needed to achieve a more equitable energy future. The team developed effective strategies for engaging communities, funding equitable technology and infrastructure investments, expanding existing clean energy and energy assistance programs, and designing new programs and policies to enhance equity.
