The energy transition
While energy has allowed societies to develop and flourish through the centuries, today we know that the way we produce, transport and use energy cannot be sustained indefinitely without avoiding negative impacts on people and planet.
Positive Energy works to accelerate the transition to a new, brighter energy future, one that is compatible with increased societal prosperity and well-being.
Firstly, energy not consumed.
Massive opportunities exist to obtain the service desired (moving from A to B; home warmth and comfort; etc.) using less energy than we do today. This saves money and often comes with multiple other benefits (reduced pollution, better health, increased energy security, etc.).
Secondly, energy from renewable sources.
Through the centuries, we have become extremely good at ‘burning things’. The time has come to start seizing the biggest fire we know (the Sun) and its associated sources of energy (wind, waves, water currents, etc).
Last but definitely not least, the optimism and attitude of our own team.
By embodying the positive future in our own work, we help spread and accelerate the transition. We aim to be the change we want to see in the World.
“Societal prosperity and energy transition are not at odds. As a matter of fact, I don’t think we can have the former without the latter”

We help our partners develop advocacy strategies; conduct research; fundraise; communicate on energy and climate issues, etc.

Advising the advocacy strategy of Europe’s main philanthropic organisation dedicated to fighting climate change.
Writing a successful bid for a multi-million European project under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme on behalf of a group of companies, environmental NGOs and consumer organisations.
Establishing on-going collaborations with influential non-profits, innovative companies and specialised media in the field of energy and climate.
