Howard Johns, author of Energy Revolution will lead the discussion about the clean energy alternatives that can be developed through a community energy business model.
Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement says about Energy Revolution: “Re-imagining our energy system offers the potential of a win-win-win future: low carbon energy, more resilient communities, vibrant local economies. What’s more, it’s possible and it’s already happening. Howard Johns, founder of Southern Solar and OVESCo, paints a spellbinding picture of the revolution happening around us, and the part you could play in it.”
Telling stories of the change that’s already happening from around the world and drawing on two decades of his own unique experience, Howard Johns demonstrates how we can develop our own renewable energy projects to provide local energy and create a new fleet of businesses. He shows us how communities can build local energy solutions (renewable power stations that will be a new form of building society) where we come together to develop, finance and construct the infrastructure that we and future generations so desperately need. These new systems will create new jobs and businesses, reduce energy imports and create new local investment models.
