Shaping the Energy Transition: A Community Approach
This event will provide the latest details about the growing opportunities within the community energy sector in London and more widely. We’ll explore what community energy is and how community energy groups are working to enable a more just energy transition.
The event will feature guest speakers from Repowering London, who have been empowering communities to fund, install and manage their own clean, local energy for a decade. They believe that putting people at the heart of the energy system is the key to fighting the climate emergency, building resilient communities and promoting technological innovation that will democratise the energy system.
They will share their insights and discuss their projects, from generating renewable energy and efficiency measures to area based approaches to retrofit, collaboration with local authorities to shaping new smarter energy neighbourhoods. Dr Anna Rebmann is a Lecturer in Social Entrepreneurship at King's Business School and will also share a research project she has been collaborating with them on.
But this event isn’t just about listening - it’s about taking action. We want to inspire you to become energy activists yourselves. Therefore, we’ll also provide guidance on how students can get involved in community energy groups or start their own. By attending this event, you won’t just learn about community energy – you can become part of the solution to the climate crisis.
