The PPL PWR Committee
Adam is a civil engineer by trade and holds a Master’s Degree in Renewable Energy and Energy Management. A true believer in a greener economy and a festival goer for a number of years, Adam sees the potential for increasing the use of alternative sources of power and reducing the carbon footprint of festivals. In the past he has been heavily involved in the education of members of the engineering community and students. He held a national competition in the field of finite element analysis and considers education as a cornerstone of his philosophy..
Bernardo is a Chemical Engineer transitioning to International Development at UCL. Eager to promote and include sustainable measures in cities and communities, he implements appropriate technologies that could be most beneficial to the society and environment and he is our administrative facilitator doing all the fun stuff no one else wants to do! Sustainability for him must be inclusive and holistic, encompassing political and physical dimensions to the already existing sustainable dimensions we try to promote.
Josh graduated from Oxford University in 2011 with a Master’s in Chemistry, with a particular focus on organic chemistry and catalysis. He moved to London in 2014 to embark on a 4-year PhD focusing on fuel cells and got involved with the public engagement group UCell. Josh believes PPL PWR is positive collective that can enable different groups and communities to come together, through talking with the public at festivals, as well as help create a greener ethos in commerce and at home.
Molkie has a background in Disruptive Innovation, Sustainability and Entrepreneurism. When not in a festival field, you'll find him on his laptop running his Design business. He believes that sustainability should be a given; not a compromise, and has built PPL PWR to empower the 'peopl;e and push awareness into the public consciousness around renewables and sustainability. As a maker, he has developed a number of PPL PWR demos and converted a van into PPL PWR's Off-Grid Lab
Natacha fell in love with PPL PWR in 2018 and has been part of the family ever since. A master graduate from Hult International Business School in both Business Administration and Disruptive Innovation, she is passionate about social entrepreneurship, circular economy, sustainability/green energy and empowering communities to make this world a better place. She strongly believes in empowering citizens notably through education and awareness campaigns, hence her commitment to PPL PWR’s workshops in schools and festivals.
Paul is an enthusiastic and self-motivated engineer with working experience in the renewable energy sector. He has excellent knowledge of solar energy technology and air pollution, experience with HVAC and solar cell design and possesses the skills to solve practical problems from a theoretical basis with an analytical approach. He enjoys being part of and contributing to a successful and productive team, and sharing his nuts in the pub!
Anna holds a BA in Biological Natural Sciences from Homerton College Cambridge, and is doing a PhD in Neuroscience funded by the Wellcome Trust at UCL and is working on a new therapy to restore muscle function in ALS patients. Anna’s passion for sustainability inspired her to enter UCL Sustainability Challenge 2016 which she won with a proposal to create GreenConnect, a network across UCL to facilitate sustainability projects.
Martha is PhD student studying Neuroscience at UCL. With a passion for all things science, she wanted to find out more about what she could do to help our planet. Which is why she joined PPL PWR! “I’ve learned so much about renewable technology and am being exposed to new sustainable projects and ideas all the time. I really enjoy inspiring other people how we can each make a positive difference.”
Amanda is a graduate from Architectural and Interdisciplinary Studies at University College London, she has ever since has followed her eco-warrior passion to make the world a greener place. Her entrepreneurial spirit has taken her to Uganda and Kenya, working one-to-one to develop and implement sustainable agricultural growth for farmers. In 2014 her eyes were opened to the reality of waste at festivals, pushing her to design, test and implement innovative solutions to reduce waste.
We meet because we know how important design is. We are young and creative people with passion and commitment to what we do. We want to talk about it
