BRIEFING PAPER SIX OF BLACK, BROWN AND GREEN
Black, Brown and Green, a program of the Center for Social Inclusion, explores the economic opportunities and hurdles facing green business models serving communities of color. The sixth and final paper in our series, Geothermal Energy Generation at the Community Level, explores factors influencing geothermal energy production today, from environmental conditions and economic changes to current policy and available technology.
Policy makers, investors and stake holders need a firm grasp of business structures that protect community control and provide ownership opportunities. They need strategies for raising the right type and levels of capital, and they need knowledge of accessible technology. Businesses and communities must lay a foundation for future success, one that strengthens individual and community prospects today. Black Brown and Green offers resources to help communities and companies identify their needs and develop a strategy to enter the Green Energy Sector.
