The Mayor

The latest figures show that by the end of 2013, London had 12,800 sites generating 820 GWh of electricity from renewable sources. This is over double the amount of generation compared to 2008 and a six percent increase on 2012. In addition, in 2013, London had 275 combined heat and power (CHP) schemes, generating over 1,700 Gwh of heat and power. It is estimated that a minimum of 2.4 percent of London energy use in buildings was supplied by decentralised energy.
