Energy Island by Allan Drummond


Energy Island by Allan Drummond

At a time when most countries are producing ever-increasing amounts of CO2, the rather ordinary citizens of Samso have accomplished something extraordinary - in just ten years they have reduced their carbon emissions by 140 per cent and become almost completely energy independent. A narrative tale and a science book in one, this inspiring true story proves that with a little hard work and a big idea, anyone can make a huge step towards energy conservation.


The thrilling idea, the book concludes, is that Samso is not very different from where you live.

't need wind; it needs a spark, to get people to think and work together. Los Angeles Times
