Your response to MQ 2014/5808 on the CBI's call to Government for energy efficiency to be made a UK infrastructure priority was as follows "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". How will your London Infrastructure Plan support energy efficiency as an infrastructure priority?

The London Infrastructure Plan prioritises energy efficiency and infrastructure through my RE:NEW and RE:FIT programmes in existing buildings, and through my energy policies in the London Plan for new development.
