John Farrell

Institute for Local Self Reliance
Director of Democratic Energy
MN
"John Farrell is the Director of the Energy Democracy initiative at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and widely known as the guru of distributed energy. John is best known for his vivid illustrations of the economic and environmental benefits of local ownership of decentralized renewable energy. He’s the author of Energy Self-Reliant States, a state-by-state atlas of renewable energy potential highlighted in the New York Times, showing that most states don’t need to look outside their borders to meet their electricity needs.

John provides data-rich presentations on local renewable energy for the common citizen, and has wowed crowds from Presque Isle, Maine to San Francisco to Berlin. He’s been the keynote at conferences like Solar Energy Focus in Washington, DC, and also inspired citizens in Boulder, CO, prior to their successful effort to seize more control over their energy future.

John’s work appears most regularly on Energy Self-Reliant States, a blog with timely and compelling analysis of current energy discussions and policy. The posts have been regularly syndicated at Grist, CleanTechnica, and Renewable Energy World."
