Demand Energy Equality is opening up renewable energy to all by running DIY workshops and building public art to engage people in the future of energy and the need to reduce demand.
The south-east London based organisation works with communities, organisations and individuals spreading energy literacy, practical energy skills and increasing awareness of the need to fairly reduce energy consumption.
Demand Energy Equality currently run two workshops – Introduction to Off Grid Energy and Build your own Solar Charger – which are held monthly in London.
Introduction to Off Grid Energy teaches the electrical basics – current, voltage, resistance, power, series and parallel circuits – and how to connect solar panels, batteries, charge controllers, battery guards and appliances.
Build your own Solar Charger is a DIY course into how to build a solar charger, such as phone charger, from scratch.
