A busy month of clean energy milestones

April has definitely been a busy month in terms of clean energy milestones! We’ve seen Great Britain’s energy supply enjoy its first ever coal free day since the 1880s, followed by 50% of GB’s energy being generated from low carbon sources and finally the world’s largest tidal turbine successfully ran at full capacity for the first time – producing enough energy to power 1000 homes.

Whilst it’s great to see that renewable energy is growing in popularity, the world still needs to transition to clean energy at a much faster rate! In order to accelerate the momentum this year’s ‘Global Divestment Mobilisation’ week is taking place from 5 – 13th May.

Alongside a number of planned activities, Ethex, Ethical Consumer Magazine, Triodos Bank and 350.org will be running a complimentary webinar looking at ‘Divesting out of carbon and into positive investing’.

Finally, don’t forget that two of our current offers are closing in the next few days, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to invest in Solar for Schools CBS or Gawcott Fields.
