Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Collect a carbon tax into an "Energy Pool".

The Energy Pool then makes interest-free loans to anyone who wants them (subject to due diligence on the projects or expenditure) and repayable to the Pool by:
(a) renewable energy projects - out of the energy production thereby financed;
(b) energy saving projects - by repaying their "energy debt" by paying the market price in respect of some of the energy they have saved.

Unlike $, £ and € financing, this energy financing has no "cost of money".

In truth, money has no "cost".
