Welcome!

We’re a not-for-profit organisation set up to support the network of community energy projects in London. We aim to help grow the sector by sharing resources, knowledge and experience with new and existing projects.

We meet on the third Thursday of every month and work with the Greater London Authority about the needs and wants of community energy in the city. If you are involved in a project, would like to be, or want to learn more, please check out our contact page.

We’re building a database of community energy projects in London; please get in touch if you’re not on our list and you’re involved with any of the following; renewable energy generation, energy efficiency initiatives, energy innovations, managing energy locally or collective purchasing, reducing demand or awareness raising and energy education.

If you would like help setting up a community energy initiative in London please get in touch via our contact page, with the subject line ‘Help with set up’.


 Mission statement: 

“By joining together to share best practice and pool resources where helpful, we hope to create an organisation to take community energy to the next level in London, supporting new and existing groups to drive carbon reduction and reduce fuel poverty.”
