In his 7-minute talk, Findhorn Fellow, Paul Allen, speaks to a new story for energy using rapid decarbonisation strategies around institutional change for those campaigning for things to be different. Paul says we need to radically and differently imagine our energy story as we have not yet seen it. He emphasises that the technology exists today to get very close to zero carbon, so why aren’t we using it? He encourages us to imagine what it would be like to live and love in a zero-carbon society.
Paul works for the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) designing, developing and producing a wide range of renewable energy systems including solar powered medical systems for use in Bosnia, Eritrea and many other parts of the world. He leads the ground-breaking Zero Carbon Britain research programme, liaising directly with key policy makers in government, business, public sector and the devolved assemblies to disseminate the findings of the work.
Paul’s talk was filmed at the New Story Summit: Inspiring Pathways for our Planetary Future, which took place at the Findhorn Foundation and Community in September 2014.
