Big private companies are cashing in from our out of control fuel bills. We want an energy company run for the people it serves, not for profit.
Over one million Londoners are in fuel poverty, choosing between heating and eating in the winter. We want an energy company that offers fair, affordable prices.
Cleaner & greener
To tackle climate change and curb air pollution, London needs to make the move to clean, renewable energy technology fit for the twenty-first century. We want a 100% clean energy company.
Decisions about energy affect our health, our environments and our everyday lives. We want a company that listens and gives everyone a say!
We are calling on the Greater London Authority (GLA) – in collaboration with London boroughs – to set up a new people-powered energy company.
From Nottingham to Bristol, cities across Britain are leaving the Big Six behind by setting up their own, non-profit energy companies.
We don’t want ordinary Londoners to lose out. We’re getting ripped off by big energy companies and deserve something better.
We want a new public company that cuts bills and cuts polluting carbon emissions. A non-profit company with social justice, clean energy and democracy at its core. To make a start on funding this, the GLA should divest its £4.8billion pension fund from fossil fuels and reinvest in the people's energy company we're calling for.
For people, not for profit.

We take a look at the ways in which city-run energy is fast becoming a reality in the UK, casting a critical eye on the role of private companies such as Ovo energy, who are cashing in from what should be public, socially oriented initiatives.

Join us on Thursday 4th February at City Hall to share your ideas for the new people’s energy company we’re campaigning for.
With the Conservatives promising “solar revolution” and the Greens seemingly reading our minds (or at least our press releases), we take a critical look at the energy proposals on the table from London Mayoral candidates.
