No. My Decentralised Energy (DE) Capacity Study (2011) suggested that only about 5 per cent of London's energy could be generated from PV by 2031. The same study suggested that 22 per cent of London's energy could be supplied from larger Decentralised Energy schemes linked to heat networks and therefore I am currently focussing my resources in this area.
