Is it possible to “relocalize” energy? This is a critical question that must be addressed if we are to achieve true global resilience.
In our brand new book (September 4, 2012), Power From the People, energy expert Greg Pahl decisively argues that the answer is YES.
Power From the People is the second book in our Community Resilience Guides series, The book illustrates how communities across the country are already generating their own energy at the local level. From citizen-owned wind turbines to co-op biofuel producers to community-wide initiatives combining multiple resources and technologies, Pahl outlines the steps necessary and plan, organize, finance and launch community energy projects.
The book showcases over 25 real-life examples of local energy projects, offering a range of challenges and solutions that can be adapted and reapplied.
It’s been said that we must leave fossil fuels before they leave us. Power From the People shows how that might be done.?? We’re very excited about this, our latest publication.
