The Electricity Sector

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories about several ways that communities and countries have been limiting their carbon footprint by relying increasingly on renewable energy. In Kenya, local communities are using their natural surroundings of geothermal activity to provide clean energy. India is bringing electricity to villages, while reducing their land-use (and carbon) footprint by installing solar panels in canals. Paris has transformed entire areas to have almost zero emissions by using a combination of power sources such as solar and wind, and the Danish island of Samso generates 100 percent of its energy from renewable sources.
