Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want to harness the experience and enthusiasm of community energy enterprises to help London generate more low carbon energy and, where possible, reduce demand through energy efficiency.

I am currently assessing opportunities to support new and enhance existing community energy projects through my developing Environment Strategy and Energy for Londoners initiative.
