Answer for Blackfriars Solar Bridge

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Energy and Environment Advisor, Matthew Pencharz, has not visited Blackfriars Solar Bridge in an official capacity, but has visited the updated Blackfriars station on a number of occasions to use public transport. Like me, Matthew is suitably impressed by the size and ambition of the project. Network Rail should be applauded for delivering the world's largest solar-powered bridge with its 6,000m² of PV panels, enough to power over 50% of the stations energy needs.
