Just Transition in the United States

Climate Advisers dives into what a just transition for fossil fuel-dependent communities in the U.S. might look like with examples of past initiatives, President Biden’s plans, and challenges to overcome.

The energy transition now underway in the United States, and in economies throughout the world, is expected to accelerate in the coming years and decades. The increase in renewables in the electricity sector will bring about the declining use of fossil fuels, with coal the most vulnerable.

Looking at case studies from California, Appalachia, Colorado, New Mexico and more, Climate Advisers defines what a just transition is and the pathways for implementing solutions for communities across the country over the next few years.
