Imagine upending the traditional energy system and giving the power of clean electricity production back to your neighbors. The film We the Power inspires and informs us about the barriers and possibilities for locally owned energy. It also activates people to take power back from big energy companies, because good examples of friends, families and visionaries show us it is possible. The film tells the story of local cooperatives from deep in Germany’s Black Forest to the streets of ancient Girona in Spain and the urban rooftops of London, England, as they pave the way for a renewable-energy revolution and build healthier, more financially stable communities.

This event can only be attended physically at our studio. The recordings will be made available later on and can be viewed via or via our YouTube channel.
