Solar Power Portal spoke to Emma Bridge, chief executive at Community Energy England, The Mayor’s draft environmental plan sets a 2030 target of 15% of demand in London to be met by renewable and community energy, with 100MW of solar to be deployed under City Hall policies. What do you think of these targets for London? I think it’s a good start, there’s other cities around the world that are more ambitious but the fact that London is setting that target and looking to do something is really great. I think if we can do this right we can deliver a lot more than what has been put forward but it is against the national policy backdrop. We do need clearer, more long-term energy strategy for London to really be able to deliver and be ambitious.
