“Humanity’s journey into the fossil-fuel era was marked by the enclosure of common resources, monopoly control, and a growth in inequality. Finding ways to develop and invest in renewable resources offers a wonderful opportunity to do things differently.

“Financing our decarbonisation is a chance to create not just a new green economy but also to revolutionise the way we use finance. If we fund the transition through public banking and through community ownership we can enable the value of money-creation to be reinvested for the public good and the value of renewable energy to accrue for local communities.”
