Sustainable Community Funds - Paving the Switch to Sustainable Living

The transition to sustainable growth and widely available renewable energy has never been more important. Since the first Rio Earth Summit in 1992 and the signing of the Climate Change Act in 2008, environmental legislation has been debated and published at an increasing rate, with each pledge often bolder than the last. The UK’s commitment to net-zero emissions has been at the forefront of climate policy in the last two decades, while navigating the switch to renewable energy production has been deemed comparatively less vital.

The technology to support the switch to a British-based renewable energy supply is entirely within current capabilities, using proven technology and pre-existing infrastructure to satisfy demand. With an increasing number of people concerned about climate change, as well as rising gas prices caused both by lockdown and market instability caused by the Russia-Ukraine war, the demand for fresh policy has never been higher.
The evidence is clear, the UK needs to make substantial and effective change to its energy supply network, so what shall we do?

The greatest hurdle faced by the UK government when discussing a switch to renewable energy is the investment required to fund the transition itself and the development of new heating, installation, and energy systems. Considering the cost-of-living crisis, no government wants to further increase the expenses of the taxpayer. So, what is the alternative?

The Sustainable Growth Party proposes a new idea, one which relies on 100% private sector funding. Within this proposal, the UK is separated into specific areas, known as Community Grids. New workers, known as Electricity Supply Operators, will manage these regions, monitoring predicted energy demand and supply, and calculating the needed funds to supply the need for electricity, accounting for ample storage of EV’s, commercial and domestic use, and reserves, calculating at a price of 5 TWh pa, which is 60% cheaper than the current market price.

Each of these grids will establish a Sustainable Community Fund (SCF) to raise the necessary investment. These funds will be strictly monitored to ensure they are being used effectively, with money raised going directly into community staples such as electric vehicles, the development of space heating and hot water systems, and the installation of solar PV on commercial and domestic properties.

The group nature of this investment will result in better rates than would be expected from individual purchasing, allowing for more effective use of public spending. Individual citizens or businesses particularly concerned about climate change are also invited to self-fund or donate to their community if they feel inclined to do so.

Working together as a collective is a vital element of the fight against climate change, and unity behind common goals will allow us to keep costs at their lowest and ensure collaborative thinking when bringing Britain into a renewable future.

Sustain Party RoundelStand for the Sustainable Party

We aim to have candidates in as many UK constituencies as possible in all future local and national elections. To achieve this aim we need your support!

We are actively seeking potential candidates, especially those who may already be considering standing as independents, who are committed to promoting genuinely sustainable economic growth for Britain, but who don’t necessarily accept some of the growth restricting policies of other environmental parties.
