The energy revolution is already underway  as people around the world embrace renewable energy in their communities. This groundbreaking book summarises why we must switch to renewables and explains how this can be achieved where you live. It is packed full of success stories from energy pioneers in the UK, America, Europe, Asia and Africa. It shows how we can all play a vital role in the energy revolution and change the world, one community at a time!

Drawing on the author’s two decades of experience as a renewable energy  engineer, community activist, consultant, business leader and government adviser, Energy Revolution gives you the tools to develop projects in your locality. This handbook covers everything needed to structure your community power company – the technology, site assessment, legal and business planning, fundraising and financial modelling – whilst putting people at the heart of your strategy. 

Change the system from the bottom up and make the next great leap forward to achieving clean, affordable, democratic energy. It’s time  for us to take control, relocalise, reduce costs and carbon emissions, repower our neighbourhoods and join the energy revolution.
