The change to a renewable world is inevitable – and the beginning steps pose the greatest challenge. A world so overwhelmingly dependent on fossil fuels requires bold ideas, dramatic shifts in thinking, and action without delay. Fortunately we can find examples of this change across the world, at all levels of personal and collective engagement. This collection aims to portray a series of pioneering initiatives and their champions.
This website is designed to document, analyze and disseminate current practice, projects and plans for communities, cities and countries determined to be entirely independent from fossil fuel and nuclear power.

The research and consultancy group's study of the latest polar vortex shows the need for greater interconnection of grids and 18-40 hours of energy storage in the Upper Midwest under high renewable energy scenarios. It also shows a potential role for nuclear power; but other extreme weather events tell a different story.
