Planning for a New Energy and Climate Future

2010

'Planning for a New Energy and Climate Future' was prepared by the American Planning Association in collaboration with the Environmental and Energy Study Institute, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the University of North Carolina Asheville. This report provides a framework for how to integrate energy and climate into the planning process, and offers strategies for communities to address energy and climate change across a variety of issues, including development patterns, transportation, and economic development. Case studies illustrate communities that have already begun taking steps in these areas. The report is available for purchase.

2016 U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Justice Strategy

January 2017

This strategy document is the culmination of a process that began in November 2007 to review and update the Department of Energy (DOE) 1995 Environmental Justice Strategy. The strategy describes DOE’s plan for complying with Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Population (Clinton, 1994). The strategy outlines its objectives to integrate environmental justice into National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) implementation, minimize climate change impacts on vulnerable people, and comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
