Many places are undertaking efforts to transition their energy sources from fossil fuels to renewables.

Available expert: 

Dr. Erin Baker is a professor of industrial engineering and operations research—and is the faculty director of The Energy Transition Institute—at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She can discuss topics including:

  • Efforts to transition to renewable energy via technology, policies, and regulations;
  • Ways that our current energy system disproportionately harms poor communities and communities of color—such as by exposing them to higher levels of dangerous pollution and charging them more for electricity—and how these issues can be addressed; and
  • Offshore wind energy, including the ambitious targets for offshore wind power set by the federal government and eight states, and the environmental costs and benefits of offshore wind.
