Renewable energy sector should not just enrich a few – Sunday Independent |


““The renewable energy sector can use cheap labour, exploit women and children, use labour brokers and be dangerous in terms of occupational health and safety. Without being defensive, we need an analysis of the renewable energy sector so as to steer it in our favour.”

The conference was aimed at deepening the understanding of what a socially-owned renewable energy sector might look like. “We are referring to different forms of collective ownership – energy parastatals, municipal-owned solar parks, wind co-operatives and other community-owned and controlled renewable energy companies.””
