The purpose of these case studies is to showcase working financial models for universities and other higher education institutions to invest in solar energy on campus. As part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, three case studies were developed to highlight higher education investment in solar energy projects.
This initiative encourages civic engagement and skills for democracy among undergraduate students on critical national issues such as political engagement, stewardship of public lands and tackling America’s financial debt. It examines the roles and actions of government agencies, advocacy organizations, and citizens in trying to address problems and resolve conflicts through a blend of national and campus-centered activities.
This organization involves social movements, environmental and development NGOs, trade unions, faith and other civil society groups to assess the climate commitments that have been put on the table through the UN climate negotiations. Their goal is to identify which countries are offering to do their fair share, which need to do more, and present recommendations on how to close the emissions gap.
The Clean Energy Savings for All Initiative is a cross-government partnership to bring solar power to low and moderate-income families by allowing Americans to achieve solar power with no up-front cost. The goal is a 10X increase and an expansion of the initial target set in the Climate Action Plan to install 100 MW of renewable energy on federally assisted affordable housing by 2020.

This report is a clean energy jobs analysis providing detailed breakdowns of clean energy jobs not available previously. According to the findings, energy efficiency is by far the nation’s largest clean energy sector, employing 3.3 million Americans, up from 2.5 million in 2016. The country’s clean energy jobs market is huge and will continues to create more jobs which could be accelerated through stronger energy policies.

This report is the first study to examine in depth actions that multiple municipalities are taking to address climate-change fueled events like flooding, heat waves, wildfires and intense storms. It found that more municipalities are preparing for climate risks than is conventionally believed, that many of those actions support multiple community goals and values, and that despite the progress much more work is necessary to comprehensively address climate risks. The report can be a helpful resource for educators and communities working to establish sound protections against the impacts of a changing climate.
Climate Connections, a daily public radio series, delivers stories about how climate change is impacting our lives and what diverse people and organizations are doing about it (produced by Yale Climate Connections). In addition to audio, also find news articles and video, browseable by a variety of topics linked to planetary warming: agriculture, national security, energy, policy, economics and more.
Climate Feedback is a new fact-checking tool that lets climate scientists review journalists’ articles on climate change and global warming and gives each story a credibility score. Furthermore, a browser extension is used to enable the scientists to comment on information within media stories so that anyone who installs the plug-in can see the commentary. By highlighting misinformation, a visual cue is being sent to the reader to be cognitively on guard, and thus misinformation is less likely to spread.
These interactive, engaging and scientifically based tools help students see connections, play out scenarios, and figure out what works in addressing climate change. All free to download, a variety of materials are available including: a simulation showing impacts of energy choices on planetary health; mock-UN climate negotiation role play simulation; online trainings in systems thinking to address climate change; and exploring how climate solutions can address other challenges, including health, resilience, and equity.
