Clean, renewable energy is within our reach — all we have to do is seize the opportunities around us.
To live greener, healthier lives we need to be using less energy and getting more of our energy from renewable sources like the sun and the wind. The good news is that powering our lives with clean energy is getting easier every day, and the transition away from fossil fuels, toward an economy that runs on renewable energy, is picking up steam. Together we can accelerate the change.
