Crowdfunding Comes of Age

Frank Bozzo

More and more, people who are concerned about climate change are “putting their money where their mouths are,” by investing in renewable energy sources thorough innovative online crowdfunding.  Recently, This Planet posted the story Crowdfunding Solar about Abundance Generation, a British Ashden Award-winner. Abundance is one of three British websites named by Solar Plaza as the top five renewable crowdfunders worldwide (number one is the Dutch company Windcentrale, and there is one American company on the list, Mosaic Energy).

A number of This Planet videos have covered innovative crowdfunding projects recently, illustrating the range of this new form of public participation. In addition to Crowdfunding Solar, there’s Desert On Ice, the story of an extraordinary project in the northern Indian region of Ladakh that is supporting agriculture through the creation of ‘Ice Stupas’.

Another fascinating effort we reported on in the video What Is Dark Snow?  A group of scientists, who are using crowdfunding to support their research trips to  Greenland, have discovered a new and unsuspected element contributing to the melting ice in northern latitudes.
