"The relationship between renewable energy sources and the communities we expect to host them must be appropriate and sustainable and, above all, acceptable to local people."
– Owen Paterson
Energy consumption is at the crux of developing a sustainable society. This is because developing a sustainable society involves growing an economy while consuming as little non-renewable energy as possible. In order for sustainable energy practices to truly take hold and become widely adopted, it requires cooperation from all elements of society, including governments, businesses and individual residents. An example of such cooperation includes the incentivizing of adopting renewables by government on behalf of local businesses and residents.
