Across the world, communities are coming together to respond to fundamental challenges such as climate change, economic hardship and energy access.

They are doing this through creating community-owned and community-run clean energy projects. From wind to solar, bioenergy to hydropower, energy efficiency to microgrids there are thousands of community-owned clean energy projects across the world that are providing energy, income, employment and empowerment to local communities.
