Labour’s London Mayor candidate Sadiq Khan has outlined his ambition to ignite a ‘clean energy revolution’ in the capital, pledging to be the ‘greenest mayor ever’. Khan’s plans, announced on a visit to the Islington Bunhill Energy Centre, were headlined by ‘Energy for Londoners’ – a not-for-profit company that will take a lead on clean and green energy across the city. Among other things, the new company would develop a dedicated solar strategy to take advantage of London roofs and land; create further district heating schemes and issue Green Bonds in order to to invest in green projects across the city. “I want to be the greenest Mayor London has ever had,” said Khan.” I want my daughters to grow up in a city that is cleaner and greener, in which people aren’t dying because the air is so filthy. But I also want London to be at the cutting edge of new green technologies, generating the growth and jobs of the future. “Energy for Londoners will bring a renewed focus to our drive to make London a cleaner, greener city.
