In January 2019, University College London was awarded the contract to produce an online map of annual solar radiation on all roofs and areas of open land within the M25 motorway (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/bartlett/energy/news/2019/jan/ucl-energy-institute-wins-project-develop-london-solar-opportunity-map). This would allow for the potential for solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal installations at every building and suitable site to be estimated. When will this map finally be made public?
