With reference to MQ 4240/2012, can you detail exactly what proportion of TfL's electricity currently comes from "local, directly sourced electricity from low carbon generators in London" and how many "Power Purchase Agreements to source energy directly from low carbon generators outside of London" does TfL (a) currently have in place and are (b) actively negotiating?

The work described in my answer to your question MQ 4240 /2012 is ongoing.

TfL is currently negotiating with three low-carbon electricity suppliers in London, but is not yet sourcing electricity from any Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) arrangements.

The Government Procurement Service continues to develop a mechanism that would allow authorities to enter into PPAs directly with electricity suppliers.
