There is no target for energy reduction in the station refurbishment programme as the PPP contracts do not specifically incentivise energy reduction or conservation, although they do require Infracos to comply with good industry practice. LU is working with the PPP contractors to incorporate energy efficiency.  For example, old lighting will be replaced by low energy high efficiency units with sensor controls where possible. LU is currently formulating a plan that will seek to increase the proportion of energy it uses that is derived from renewable, low-carbon and high efficiency sources, in line with mayoral targets and TfL's strategy, as the power generation market's ability to provide more 'green' energy economically increases.
