100percentrenewableuk has the following mission statement:
The aim of 100percentrenewableUK is to campaign for the provision of all UK’s energy requirements by renewable energy by the year 2050, or as soon as practicable before then. This means all energy, not just electricity, and includes energy for domestic, commercial, industrial and transport. This implicitly excludes nuclear energy and also fossil fuels with or without carbon capture and storage. The campaign is a forum for discussion, education and campaigns for policies on particular issues. The main topic for debates and campaigning are the politics, economics and technology of paths that can achieve 100 per cent renewable energy for the UK.
The website and the accompanying email group are associated with a (not-for-profit) company limited by guarantee of the same name, that is 100percentrenewableuk.org Ltd. Five Directors have been appointed: David Toke, Herbert Eppel, Keith Kondakor, Ian Fairlie and Nick Carroll.
You can help by a) signing up for alerts for our blogs b) if you support the mission statement, please join up to our email discussion group c) consider buying our publications and other offerings d) come to our webinars, the first of which will be on October 17th – check that one out!
There’s a lot of free information on this website, and you could help by sending in videos, photos of relevant topics and giving us permission to use them on the website (send us a message if you can do this). Of course to enable us to produce publications and hold events we charge small amounts for some of our material/events. We are entirely independent, and thus will be dependent on sale of services or donations. Please consider helping us by buying our first report on how nuclear power is undermining windpower, and also by registering for our founding conference (it’s a webinar). Remember that the fossil fuel and nuclear industries have massive funds at their disposal and at the moment there are very few groups overtly campaining for, and preparing the way for, a UK powered by 100 per cent renewable energy. Look on our ‘report’ and ‘launch conference’ pages for details of how to obtain the report and register for our launch conference-webinar.
