Our energy, your power

PUNL is a non-profit community organisation that enables local people to tackle climate change by delivering renewable energy projects. Our projects reduce carbon emissions and running costs for site owners while supporting the local economy. 

Our vision is to contribute to North London boroughs becoming net zero carbon by 2030 underpinned by a resilient, independent and collaborative community of residents harnessing clean energy.

To deliver on this, we…

Enable people in North London to invest in clean technologies, leading to a reduction in carbon emissions.

Invest surpluses from energy generation in the communities that generate them through our Community Energy Fund.

Give our volunteers and members fulfilling opportunities to contribute to our vision.

“Power Up North London (PUNL) is a fantastic, independent grass roots organisation in Camden, which is pioneering a new model for combatting climate change by empowering local residents to play a part in reducing carbon emissions and developing strong community resilience.”

Sir Keir Starmer QC, MP for Holborn & St Pancras

Community Energy Fund

The Community Energy Fund uses surpluses from the business activity of Power Up North London (PUNL) to encourage and support community action in reducing carbon in our atmosphere. The fund is administered by a committee formed of PUNL members, some of whom are directors of the Society. We want to tackle climate change, and are excited about this opportunity to take that journey with other organisations based in North London.


Join the community energy revolution by helping us save 100 tonnes of carbon

PUNL’s aim is to deliver larger-scale solar PV and renewable heat projects to save 100 tonnes of carbon by 2022. This is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 40 acres of new forest. We require your financial support to do so. Any funds provided will allow us to pay for feasibility studies and also to invest in local employment opportunities for young people to deliver projects.
