Delivering London’s Energy Future is the Mayor’s climate change mitigation and energy strategy. It sets out his strategic approach to limiting further climate change and securing a low carbon energy supply for London.

To limit further climate change the Mayor has set a target to reduce London’s CO2 emissions by 60 per cent of 1990 levels by 2025. Delivering London’s Energy Future details the programmes and activities that are ongoing across London to achieve this. These include:

  • RE:NEW – retrofitting London’s homes with energy efficiency measures, and helping Londoners save money off their energy bills.
  • RE:FIT – retrofitting London’s public sector buildings, saving millions of pounds every year.
  • RE:CONNECT – ten low carbon zones in London aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% by 2012 across the community.
  • Decentralised energy programme – aiming to supply 25 per cent of London’s energy from secure, low carbon local sources.

Delivering London’s Energy Future also details policies and activities underway to reduce CO2 emissions from new development and transport through the London Plan and the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
