Transition Town Brixton

This means providing money, advice and support to help local people come together to take control.

For the last couple of years, TTB have been exploring ways of increasing energy efficiency and using renewable energy in Brixton. Brixton Energy is aligned with the aims of the Transition movement.


The Brixton Pound
The Brixton Pound (B£) is money that sticks to Brixton. It’s designed to support Brixton businesses and encourage local trade and production. It’s a complementary currency, working alongside (not replacing) pounds sterling, for use by independent local shops and traders.

Lambeth Council
Lambeth Council strives to give people more involvement and control of the services they use and the places where they live by putting council resources in their hands. Brixton Energy Co-operative will see residents generating their own energy and reducing carbon emissions realising Lambeth Council’s ambition of moving towards a Cooperative Council.
