Think big locally

Why Energy?

Reducing the carbon intensity of electricity generation is vital, as our energy supply contributes around one-quarter of the total annual carbon emissions in the UK. Decentralisation of renewables is an unstoppable force – local energy generation improves security of supply, is increasingly cost-effective and is far less polluting. We are part of a virtuous cycle: empowerment leads to more people switching to renewable energy supplies, that accelerates greater decentralisation of power generation, that results in more empowerment locally.
