Since 2011, Repowering has empowered communities to fund, install and manage their own clean, local energy. We believe that putting people at the heart of the energy system is key for fighting the climate emergency, building resilient communities and promoting technological innovation.
Based in Brixton, South London, Repowering is a charity and non-profit intermediary between communities, local authorities and corporate partners. We have a talented and passionate Board of Directors, a small and dedicated staff, and a host of amazing volunteers who work in the office and on different projects.
Our model provides more than low-carbon energy. We deliver a unique nine-stage programme that incorporates social, financial and educational opportunities. Plus, our projects are fully democratic and are run by community benefit societies, a type of co-operative.
Repowering offers public and private sector organisations the opportunity to engage in corporate and social responsibility leadership. Organisations can invest in our projects, buy our energy or sponsor a training programme. Individuals can also develop their professional expertise and give back to the community through corporate volunteering in the areas of community engagement, gardening or business development.
