Our public consultation on the draft Solar Action Plan ended on 17 November 2017.
We're now reviewing the responses and considering potential changes to the strategy. The final Solar Action Plan will be published in 2018.
The draft plan
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 and invites you to comment on how we can achieve this.
This plan, the first of its kind for 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.
