Climate intelligence startup will support the anchor organization of the Red, Black, and Green New Deal to promote energy democracy

PHILADELPHIA - Amzeal -- Quioveo Energy ("Quioveo"), a Black immigrant-led social enterprise building technologies designed to unlock access to sustainable energy throughout the United States, announced that they are partnering with the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy ("GCCLP") as the first enterprise-level user of their flagship product, Illuminator. GCCLP is a public interest law firm that serves as the anchor organization of both the southern climate justice initiative called Gulf South for a Green New Deal (https://www.gulfsouth4gnd.org/) and the national climate justice initiative at the Movement for Black Lives called the Red, Black and Green New Deal (https://redblackgreennewdeal.org/). Illuminator, currently still in development, will collect data and generate analytics at the intersection of energy, economics, demographics, geography and other parameters.

In announcing the partnership, founder and CEO Leo Alicante said, "It is an honor and a privilege for our first customer to be such a visionary organization that centers communities of color in the work of climate justice across the country. I am proud about the way this partnership demonstrates where our priorities are as a non-traditional tech startup, and I believe that together, we will use dynamic, intersectional data and technology to support disinvested communities in leading the transition to a new energy paradigm."

By engaging at this early stage, GCCLP, its partners, and the communities it serves will play a critical role in defining what Illuminator becomes - the rare occasion when an AI-driven technology is designed from the beginning almost entirely based on input from communities of color.

"While we are eager to see what Quioveo's technology will eventually do to support our work in advancing structural shifts in climate justice and ecological equity," said Colette Pichon Battle, Esq, founder and Executive Director of GCCLP, "we know that this work is first and foremost about people. It's time we invest in Black and frontline-led enterprises because they are the people who understand what it means to live at the intersection of climate change and systemic inequities. They are the ones building the tools specifically to overcome these challenges. It's time for a broader set of this society to follow our lead and recognize the necessity and honor of what it is to partner with a firm like Quioveo."
