The climate crisis is one of the most pressing matters of our time. By transitioning to clean energy and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, we can minimise our carbon footprint and slow down the effects of climate change. Affordable and Clean Energy goes hand-in-hand with global warming – in order to meet our long term climate goals, we must look towards green energy. Here are the incredible people, campaigns and think tanks helping tackle clean energy.
RenewableUK members are business leaders, technology innovators and expert thinkers from across the industry. They’re working to shift our future energy system to clean electricity and deliver a future which is better for people and the planet. Read more here.
