“We are delighted that the UKPN's grant has enabled us to install LED lighting and a building management system throughout the youth centre, not only to save running costs, but to help us fulfil our target of reducing our emissions by 5% per year over the next three years."

About the Devas club
Founded in 1884 just off Lavender Hill in Battersea, south-west London. The Devas Club serves young people daily providing a range of activities and services. The Club also leases office space to small social enterprises which work with young people both in the UK and around the world to improve educational outcomes and the well-being and confidence of young people.
The Devas Club offers a youth club five time per week with activities including dance workshops, five a side football, home work clubs, music production with an onsite recording studio among other activities. It also provides space hire for other community groups including an older people’s kitchen once a week providing a hot meal and company for local residents at risk of isolation.
The club had solar PV installed several years ago and is keen to become a sustainability beacon in the local community as well as leveraging the opportunity to engage and educate young people in sustainability topics. CREW will support Devas to achieve its sustainability goals, and facilitate learning and engagement with end users in the journey.
