Question

As part of your manifesto commitment to 'make the most of the city's roofs, public buildings and land owned by TfL for energy generation by producing a solar energy strategy', will you consider extending your audit of Transport for London land for solar and renewable energy generation to all public sector buildings in London, including schools?

Answered By:

Yes. My officers are working with TfL to review opportunities for solar photovoltaics in particular on their buildings. We shall work with the other functional bodies as well to identify and deliver further opportunities for solar energy and other renewables on the wider GLA Group estate. Furthermore we are scoping the development of a London-wide tool to estimate potential for solar energy at a building level, which could potentially be used to assess public buildings, including schools.
