Power Up North London receives £20,000 from Urban Community Energy Fund!

Great news to start 2016!!! Power Up North London is excited to announce that we have been awarded £20,000 in funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change to explore two community energy projects. Find out more about the grant and what we've been up to on our blog.

Back in November, the PUNL team attended a Community Energy Question Time event at City Hall. This was a chance to discuss the future of community energy given the changing policy landscape, and how London community energy groups could work together. Ben reports back here.

With a lot of work to do in the coming months we're looking for new members who want to help us bring community owned green energy to North London. Get in touch at powerupnorthlondon@gmail.com to get involved. 

 

Are you a lawyer looking for an exciting volunteering opportunity?

In the coming few months Power Up North London will need legal advice on drawing up lease and purchase agreements among other things. If you have a legal background and would like to be involved in our exciting work in 2016, please contact Nikki on 07715383983 to help us Power Up North London!
What is the future for community energy?

Shortly after the Paris climate talks in December, the Government announced that the Feed- In Tariff (FIT) for renewables would be slashed by 65% from 15 January. This was actually a less dramatic cut than first proposed by DECC, largely due to concerted campaigning by community energy groups and the wider renewable sector. 

Despite this more difficult policy landscape, Power Up North London is determined to deliver a community energy project in North London in 2016. Watch this space for exciting news coming soon!
