London mayor Sadiq Khan’s has been urged to include special considerations for solar in his plans to launch an independent energy supplier for London. The London Assembly Environment Committee has this week published its ‘Getting Warmer’ report, which highlights how measures undertaken by the mayor and his team could help alleviate fuel poverty in the capital. While the report focuses predominantly on the mayor’s much-vaunted push to launch Energy for Londoners (EfL), an energy supplier initially planned for businesses but potentially earmarked for the residential market too, it too discusses solar at length. Describing the technology as “one of the of the most suitable forms” of generation within London, the report’s authors urge the mayor to “look carefully” at previous recommendations issued to his predecessor Boris Johnson to help boost the uptake of solar in the capital.
