Delivering Decentralized, Community-Controlled Renewable Energy Access
The world is in the grips of a climate crisis driven by greenhouse gas emissions, of which the largest single source is the energy sector. Any successful global effort to mitigate climate change will require a drastic reduction in energy sector emissions, which can be achieved by a shift to renewable energy sources and a reduction in energy consumption. Environmental and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and activists have been pushing for such policies for decades. However, while a shift to renewable energy must happen across the board, it is critical that in undertaking such a transformation, global inequities in energy consumption are taken into account.
