Trailblazers in community energy

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.

Our solution

Energy is expensive, reliant on fossil fuels, and owned by a handful of big companies. By working with local authorities, schools and commercial partners, we empower some of London’s most deprived communities to take greater control of their energy generation and use.

Once up and running, our projects continuously generate both locally owned, clean energy and the social energy that allows communities to flourish. We create wide-ranging impacts by reducing carbon emissions and providing an ethical investment opportunity. On the ground, we also tackle fuel poverty through energy efficiency measures and improve the employment prospects of young people.


Our history

Our drive and dedication has put us at the forefront of the sector. We established Brixton Energy Solar in 2012 which was the first community energy scheme on social housing in the world and spearheaded inner-city projects. Ever since, we have developed another five projects on social housing and 35 energy gardens on London Overground stations, with more on the way.
