How much energy is needed to sustain our standard of living with today’s technology?
Answer: 2000 Watts or Twenty, 100-watt light bulbs for each of us.
500 watts of this energy can even be provided by non-renewable energy meeting the Paris target for everyone: 1 ton of CO2 for each of us. That’s based on the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data of what it takes to achieve carbon neutrality.
The 2000-Watt Society can get us there: it’s a proven framework based on global equality + local economic benefits for our neighborhood such as increased competitiveness, independence and long-term resilience. It delivers a vision, toolkit and customized Framework Plan for our community to get on the path of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. In fact, more than 500 cities throughout the world are 2000-Watt Societies. Our neighborhood can be among the first in the U.S. to be one! Now's the time to invest in a healthy, carbon-neutral world for yourself, your children, your grandchildren and future generations to come.
