    methodology, is organised on four sections, one for each main renewable energy sources: (1) biomass, (2) geothermal, (3) hydropower, (4) wind energy. The aim of the handbooks is to present a good overview of the RESs, main technological development, and case studies together with applicable example of utilization of sources. Here's how we do it. We make sure that, wherever possible, our renewable energy comes from community-controlled providers and cooperatives, so that decisions about land use are made democratically and profits from energy production are used to pay for much-needed services.” ― Naomi Klein, On Fire: The Case for the Green New Deal.
