The advent of renewable energy sources represents an authentic economic and cultural devolution, that can liberate humanity from the limit, which it has faced for decades, of an energy production regime based on fossil fuels, with all the geopolitical, health and economic consequences that accompany it. But the development of renewable energy sources in Italy shows several important anomalies that run the risk of ruining the very same virtuous mechanisms that renewable energy could set in motion. â€œGreen Liesâ€ brings these anomalies to light, showing how, in most cases, they have been exasperated by operations of economic speculation and how, in many cases, they have negative effects on local territories and populations. We went to meet local committees in three different territories: Camugnano (BO) for eolic production, Salento (LE) for solar production and monte Aiata (Tuscany) for geothermic production. Three stories which will help us to enter into the problem and outline a few possible solutions, with the awareness that renewable energy sources may truly represent an energetic and cultural revolution, but only if they become a means available to all and not just a profit-making mechanism for some.
