Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Firstly, time constraints are entirely artificial constructs, and your swimming analogy is not apt.

I propose replacing (and I've done it and seen it done, it's not difficult):

(a) use for a defined term (eg debt, leasehold) with use for an indefinite or indeterminate period (ie no "term")- ie for as long as you use an asset in which investment has been made, you share the revenues you create; and

(b) "absolute" ownership with trusteeship.

Secondly, renewable energy is not in any meaningful sense a limited resource.

Finally, what could be more liquid than an "energy dollar" of a set amount of energy?
