Question

In your review of the electricity generating potential of all viable technologies including solar PV, what will be the extent of the review? For instance will it include a full review of the technical and deployment potential of solar PV taking into account the huge uptake in Germany and the UK since, the deployment potential in conservation areas and the latest developments in building integrated photovoltaics?

In 2011 a phase 1 decentralised energy capacity study looked at the renewable energy potential in Greater London. This included the technical potential of solar PV. I will look to revise the economic viability and deployment constraints on PV to reflect changes in the solar PV market since 2011. This will be part of the energy infrastructure plan, which is due to be published by the end of 2015.
