Answer for Energy Efficiency

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I strongly agree that energy efficiency should be a UK infrastructure priority. London's existing buildings are responsible for nearly 80 per cent of London's CO2 emissions, and with 80 per cent of them likely to still be standing in 50 years time, energy efficiency will be critical in reducing energy bills, supporting those in fuel poverty, improving security of supply and cutting carbon emissions.
