Public ownership is back on the agenda. With energy companies reporting record profits while people choose between eating and heating this winter, calls for renationalising our energy system are gaining traction. However, our demands cannot be shackled to past solutions. To create a truly democratic and sustainable energy sector fit for the 21st century, we must envisage new models of public ownership.
This session will consider two different models of public ownership and outline the integral role of workers in enacting them. We’ll then invite the audience to develop a roadmap to achieving public ownership.
