Mayor Sadiq Khan wants to make London a zero carbon city by 2050.
For this to happen, London will need to be supplied by a range of clean and renewable energy sources. In his draft Solar Action Plan, the Mayor outlines how more of London’s heat and power can be generated from solar energy.
This plan, the first of its kind in London, sets out how the Mayor will seize the opportunity for solar energy in the capital and increase installations in the coming years through his flagship Energy for Londoners (EfL) programme. EfL aims to encourage more clean energy, make energy bills fairer and London’s buildings more energy efficient.This cannot be achieved by the Mayor’s programmes and leadership alone. It will need strong and supportive policy from national government and the support of local government, the private sector, charities and individuals. This requires a buoyant and expanding solar energy industry which helps bring down the costs of solar energy technologies and ensures they become competitive with fossil fuel-based generation and other low carbon energy sources in the near future. Combining solar energy generation technologies with storage technologies (like batteries) enables onsite use of heat or power to meet demand at any time of day.
