Main question

Caroline Russell

What solar energy companies have you met to discuss your forthcoming London Solar Energy Strategy?


Answer

The Mayor

I will produce a Solar Action Plan, which will help inform the energy policies of my forthcoming London Environment Strategy, as well as initiate more immediate activities to support the delivery of solar energy installations in London.

My officers have discussed key themes for the Plan on an informal basis with external experts on solar, such as community energy group representatives and the Solar Trade Association and will also continue to liaise with key stakeholders, including solar companies as the Plan develops.

We intend to publish the Plan for consultation in 2017.
