Has TfL commissioned any new electricity generation assets over the past five years?

In November 2017, Transport for London (TfL) completed a project to bring a combined heat and power (CHP) unit back into use at its head office at Palestra. This was done through a contract let on the GLA’s RE:FIT framework and alongside other improvements to the efficiency of the building.

TfL’s Energy and Carbon Strategy sets out its approach to reduce carbon and cost, following the energy hierarchy. TfL anticipates the delivery of new solar generation at a number of sites in the next financial year, as well as installations through the Retrofit Accelerator programme (formerly known as RE:FIT). TfL is undertaking an assessment of its largest rooftops for their potential to host solar photovoltaic which will complete in Spring 2020.
