Tuesday, December 4, 2019 – Ted Trabue, Managing Director of the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) joined author and journalist Kathleen Koch to discuss how sustainable energy goes hand-in-hand with improving the lives and livelihood for city residents.

The event was a part of The Atlantic Blueprint: A Summit on Infrastructure & Transportation. In its fourth installment, The Atlantic’s summit on infrastructure and transportation explored the impact of climate change on our critical systems and meet the disruptors who are sketching a blueprint for humanity’s future.

“Its important to talk about energy efficiency but the social equity and the social justice piece is just as important for me,” say Trabue. “That’s creating jobs for DC residents. Its utilizing local contractors to actually install the energy efficiency measures, the lighting, the air conditioning, and the heating systems in the buildings. It’s making sure that our low-income community is adequately served through the programs that we deploy in the city and so that they get their fair share of the programs as well.”
