The future of energy is community-owned.
Imagine upending the traditional energy system and giving the power of clean electricity production back to your neighbours. We the Power, produced by PATAGONIA, follows friends, families and visionaries as they break down legislative barriers and take power back from big energy companies to put in the hands of locals. The film chronicles local cooperatives from deep in Germany’s Black Forest to the streets of ancient Girona in Spain and the urban rooftops of London, England, as they pave the way for a renewable-energy revolution and build healthier, more financially stable communities.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with a member of Exeter Community Energy, Dr Jacob Barnes from the Environmental Change Institute and other guests.
