sources, energy-efficient technologies and building modifications, and new transportation

modes in underserved communities;

decisions at the organizational, governmental, and community levels regarding the

adoption and diffusion of renewable energy sources, energy-efficient technologies,

building modifications, and new transportation modes in underserved communities; and,

achieve climate, air quality, and other environmental goals while maximizing potential

positive impacts as well as minimizing potential negative impacts to underserved

communities arising from large-scale energy systems transformation.
