Low-impact energy - magazines


Renew is the bimonthly digital newsletter of NATTA, the Network for Alternative Technology and Technology Assessment. NATTA was set up in 1976, with its base at the Open University. Renew was launched in 1979, and is now independent of the OU. Renew has been widely recognized as a leading source of up-to-date and reliable information on energy developments and policy.

Renew covers UK and world news and developments in the area of renewables and sustainable energy – bringing you updates on new wind, wave, tidal, solar, biomass, geothermal, hydro projects and technical breakthroughs. In addition, it offers critical analysis of the policy context in which these new energy supply technologies are emerging and operating. It also looks at energy efficiency, and at the wider debates over energy use and climate change, as well as challenging the idea that nuclear power will save us. Essential reading, really.

There’s a crash coming – a slap from Mother Nature. This isn’t pessimistic; it’s realistic.

The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.

We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
