All you need to know about the Green Fightback
Our mission has always been to change the way energy is made and used, to create a greener Britain. Right now, only 30% or so of the country’s energy is green. And the climate crisis is only getting worse.
Britain has a target of zero net emissions by 2050 at the latest. As a country, we need to be planning and investing in green technology right now in order to have a chance of meeting that target.
What is the Green Fightback?
The Green Fightback is a campaign to make Britain greener by moving more quickly towards 100% green energy, street by street across the entire country. The more people who join us, the more we can do – the more we can invest into new renewable energy sources.
You’ll remember our People Power, Dump the Big 6 and anti-fracking campaigns that raised awareness and support across Britain in the battle against fossil fuels and the climate crisis. Just last year, we declared a climate emergency and joined the climate strikes across the country.
At Ecotricity, we’ve always supported grassroots climate action across Britain. We’ve protested at fracking sites with our partners, Friends of the Earth and hundreds of their local climate action groups, who work tirelessly to improve their local environment.
We’re always working with many Community Interest Groups like, Eastbourne ECO Action Network. The Network engages and unites the interests of the local council, businesses and residents to fight the climate crisis.
Now we’re making a rallying cry for you to get involved…

Ecotricity explains: Making gas from grass
Right now, we’re working on a really exciting project, the first green gas mill in Britain – turning grass into gas that can be used in standard boilers to heat our homes and fight the climate crisis.
Ecotricity explains: COP26
The world is facing a climate emergency with extreme weather events, flooding and wildfires becoming more common with devastating consequences for both people and the natural world.
Turning coal mines into hot water mines
To beat the climate crisis, we need to be clever in the way we use the green energy that’s all around us
