Zero Carbon Homes - working with community energy organisations

Meeting:

Mayor's Question Time

Date:

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Reference:

Question 2016/3675

Main question

Caroline Russell

Will you encourage boroughs and developers to work with London community energy organisations to achieve Zero Carbon Home developments?


Answer

The Mayor

My zero carbon homes policy applies to any residential development comprising ten or more dwellings.  In conjunction with the boroughs, community energy organisations have an important role supporting the delivery of renewables (and potentially energy efficiency measures) in such schemes and we will encourage this through the London Environment Strategy and future planning guidance.
