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’.
