A rapid expansion of renewable sources of electricity such as wind and solar is essential to addressing climate change and energy justice. But who should own, finance and operate these facilities?  This talk looks at the debate between public and private renewable electricity, with a focus on the problems of privatization and alternative forms of democratic public ownership.

David McDonald is Professor of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University, and Director of the Municipal Services Project, a global research initiative that unites academics, activists and practitioners engaged in debates around equitable and sustainable public services.

We Need You

With activism—and especially with climate activism—it’s easy to feel like the problems are so big you can’t do anything to make change.

We get that. That’s why we’re working together. The more voices we have calling for action, the stronger that call becomes.

Please get involved.
