Overview
This grant supports a new partnership between the Energy Futures Initiative and the AFL-CIO and NABTU. The goal of the Labor Energy Partnership is to conduct analytic research on a series of policy priorities as key to moving forward a climate and energy policy agenda for labor. The organizations have already committed to four policy principles that will guide the analytic work: Energy policy must be based on solid scientific review, which acknowledges that climate change is real, anthropogenic, and represents an existential threat to human society; successful social solutions to climate change must include energy strategies that are regionally focused, flexible, preserve optionality, and address the crises of stranded workers; climate policy should aim to preserve existing jobs and create new ones that are equal to or better than those displaced; and climate policy represents an economic opportunity in the U.S. when the benefits of new technologies result in the creation of quality jobs and competitive domestic supply chains.

for clean energy transition research  
This grant assists with the development and implementation of solutions to accelerate climate change mitigation and adaptation through innovations in technology and policy. During the grant period, Energy Futures Initiative will focus on three areas: (a) deep decarbonization of U.S. energy systems; (b) regional, national, and global clean energy innovation pathways; and (c) building a clean energy-focused workforce.
