Worldwide, the current mix of energy resources is heavily weighted towards non-renewables, and as a community we want to question our dependence on these destructive systems. Burning Man serves as an incubator for alternative power systems, and embraces the idea of energy efficiency- doing more with less energy- to the benefit of the individual, societies, as well as the wider natural environment. As in any off-grid environment, Burning Man heightens our awareness of personal energy usage, allowing us to redefine our needs. The less energy we use the less we demand from power systems, making the functionality of renewable energy systems more feasible.
