A celebration of Community Energy in South London-one solution for the Climate Emergency

As part of Community Energy fortnight, SE24 and SELCE are delighted to invite you to a celebration of all things sustainable energy in South London. We are fellow members of Community Energy London who are also supporting celebrations in North, East and West London.

The event is to showcase, celebration and to explore what else we need to see from community energy groups, new and existing, to tackle the dual problems of the climate emergency and fuel poverty, both of which are social justice issues.

Everyone is welcome to come and hear from a diverse mixture of speakers and have your say on what you need to see next. Maybe you could even get more involved with a local community energy group.
