We develop smart policies at every scale to accelerate the just and equitable deployment of advanced nuclear technologies. Our research is rooted in social science and champions a whole-of-government approach, so that communities can go from ideas, to development, to thoughtful and effective deployment faster and more efficiently.
Why We Do It
We believe all communities should have equitable access to clean energy that will meet their needs and create high-quality jobs. Nuclear energy is up to the task, but it’s going to need to look different. We don’t just mean new technologies—the entire industry needs to change from the ground up. Nuclear needs to grapple with the injustices of its history. We need a social science policy research agenda to match the engineering innovations. And most importantly, we need a diverse group of rising leaders who can partner with the climate movement to create an aggressive, coherent vision to address climate change and inequality. We wanted to create a new kind of organization that would do just that, and we’re ready to get out hands dirty.
Good Energy Collective is a nonprofit organization. We operate using a "worker self-directed" nonprofit model, so that Good Energy members can have greater agency and influence as part of our organization.
Good Energy Collective is funded by a community of small donors and philanthropic organizations that share our commitment to a just clean energy transition. Please visit our donation page, if you'd like to learn more or donate.
