Welcome to the We the Power screening room.

Please enter your name below to watch the film.



Imagine upending the traditional energy system and giving the power of clean electricity production back to your neighbors. We the Power follows friends, families and visionaries as they break down legislative barriers and take power back from big energy companies to put in the hands of locals. The film chronicles local cooperatives from deep in Germany’s Black Forest to the streets of ancient Girona in Spain and the urban rooftops of London, England, as they pave the way for a renewable-energy revolution and build healthier, more financially stable communities.

Together, we can bring the benefits of renewable energy production home. One million European citizens are involved in today’s growing community-energy movement. By 2050, it could be more than 260 million citizens, each helping to generate up to 45 percent of the European Union’s electricity from community energy—providing local jobs, reduced energy bills, a healthier environment and a stronger social fabric.

Several rural areas in Germany had energy cooperatives as far back as the late 1800s—so, we’ve pioneered in this sector before. But the development of large-scale coal, oil and nuclear operations, in addition to recent regulations, has slowed the growth of citizen-owned energy. It is now up to us, the citizens, to restore community power.
