At WLB’s House of Commons reception on 6 July 2017 The West London Zero Carbon Energy Project launched – a new initiative established to implement one of the recommendations of the ‘Green City in the West’ report, which was published by the West London Sustainability and Climate Change Commission in March 2017.
The project has been established with the purpose of accelerating the transition to zero carbon emissions for West London businesses and public-sector organisations.
Alastair Hutson, MD of Beond said:
“We believe that this can be achieved from solar, wind farms, batteries and hydrogen; produced from both centralised and distributed sources. We also believe that this can be achieved while reducing energy costs; all with the aim to reduce carbon emissions from heating to zero by 2050.
“Through The West London Zero Carbon Energy Project, We plan to reduce carbon emissions by providing a platform to group buy green electricity at cheaper prices than current fossil fuel contracts. Alongside this we will run energy innovation workshops to promote energy efficiency best practices and to introduce distributed energy solutions.”
The project will be contacting West London businesses and public sector organisations to encourage their participation in the project: and to undertake a survey to help us establish a baseline of carbon emissions from energy usage. Additionally, the survey will aim to understand what plans are already in place to increase or reduce energy usage in the near future.
