Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

In 2012/13, approximately 17 per cent of London Underground's electricity supply came from renewable and low supply carbon sources via the National Grid.

TfL aims to increase this, as set out in MQ 1618 / 2013 and MQ 1648 / 2013.
