'A vision of how, in the renewable era, shared ownership of energy could lead to a future of equality and economic security' - Molly Scott Cato

This book exposes the energy crisis as an inevitable result of an industry run by and for corporate profit. Energy policy was never meant to favour sustainability or energy security – for decades, it has been shaped by corporate interests while hampering renewable alternatives. Now we suffer the consequences.

Written by a leading energy expert, Energy Revolutions reveals the urgent need to radically increase state intervention, including public ownership, and deploy energy democracy for the public interest. It explores examples of energy democracy around the world, showing us how to fight back against fossil fuel interests, avoid climate catastrophe and the threat of nuclear technological dependency; transforming energy into a cheap, decentralised renewable good for all.
