Summary: The investigators propose establishing a thorough understanding of the current and potential approaches to reducing the significant energy burden (on low-income households) in the Southeast (with a primary focus on the Greater Atlanta region) by exploring and validating a selected approach through multi-stakeholder engagement and in-depth financial analysis. Actionable recommendations for local organizations and Georgia Tech will be developed.
