Answer for Identifying Land For Renewable Technologies

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Written response from the Mayor Brownfield sites owned by the GLA Group are already identified in the London Heat Map as potential sites for decentralised energy. This can be cross-referenced with my Decentralised Energy Capacity Study (2011), which maps opportunities across London. The anaerobic digestion plant on the Sustainable Industries Park provides an example of renewable technology on GLA Group land.
