Answered By: 
The Mayor

Schools have great potential to work closely with community energy enterprises, for example to install solar photovoltaics on their rooftops. This can be facilitated through initiatives such as the RE:FIT programme. Both schools and community groups have an important role engaging London's pupils with the issues surrounding reducing energy demand and clean energy supply to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
