In 2014 Transport for London were in commercial negotiations with two generators in London on private wire projects to deliver low carbon energy to the Tube - with a potential to deliver 15-20% of London Underground's annual energy requirement by 2016/17. What happened in relation to these negotiations, and if an agreement was not achieved, why was this so?

A commercial agreement that was acceptable to Transport for London (TfL) could not be reached with either party. TfL continues to explore options for reducing the carbon footprint of its operations, to contribute to my commitment of a zero carbon London by 2050.
