Now This Is A Renewable Energy Rally…

You’d think that a world-leading renewable energy country like Germany — a country that recently saw about 75% of its electricity production coming from renewables (at noon last Sunday) — wouldn’t need big rallies for renewable energy. Ah, but you’d be wrong. Everywhere renewable energy is growing fast, it is threatening extremely rich energy industries. Money has influence on politics all over the world, so that means renewables need strong citizen support to keep growing.
That said, since renewable energy is 1) owned by a much larger number of people, and 2) so much better for society as a whole, once renewable industries start growing, citizen support and action just gets stronger.
Take a stroll through these videos below to see how totally awesome a renewable energy rally in Berlin, held last Saturday, was:
Holy cow. That looks like fun. 😀
