The energy revolution is happening now!

Howard Johns, author of Energy Revolution looks at the successful community-owned renewable energy systems from across the globe.

From urban solar PV projects in Brixton, London and micro-grids that offer communities their own energy systems, to Norway and Costa Rica supplying 100% of their electricity needs through renewables. In the last few months, Costa Rica have even brought bills down by 12%. Renewables in Iceland produce 100% of their electricity and heat needs!

Learn from these examples and more and join the revolution. Take back control of your energy systems!
