Fossil Fuel Divestment

No New Wine in Old Bottles Replacing FERC with FREC

Beyond Extreme Energy

Recording/Webinar | All Ages


Beyond Extreme Energy and 250 other groups support replacing FERC, the fossil fuel rubber-stamping Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, with FREC, the Federal Renewable Energy Commission. FREC would have a mandate to help lead a justice-grounded, community-involving, urgent shift away from fossil fuels to renewables, battery storage, and efficiency. This session explains why this campaign emerged in connection with the Green New Deal initiative, what has happened in those two years, and how legislation in Congress combined with grassroots organizing can move this forward, and why it is so essential for major changes with FERC.
