This paper examines the contributions that grassroots renewable energy initiatives might make to a climate changing world. However, to detect the potential of these initiatives, familiar concepts of scale and markets have to be recast. It uses insights from the academic literature and research into grassroots renewable energy initiatives in Newcastle, New South Wales, to show how scale and markets can be rethought, thereby making it possible to detect some of the ways that grassroots re-newable energy initiatives are helping transform ways of living and working, and building hope in a climate changing world
