London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) acknowledges that global temperature rise needs to be kept below 1.5 degrees to avoid catastrophic climate change. To achieve this, all new buildings must operate at Net Zero Carbon by 2030 and existing buildings by 2050. As a global city, London has a responsibility to help lead the transition to a low carbon future.
LETI believes that current energy policy relating to carbon emissions in buildings in London will not deliver Net Zero Carbon for new buildings by 2030 and therefore recommends the following proposals be implemented in policy to get London on the right trajectory. These proposals will help in the delivery of buildings that are more energy efficient, lower carbon and less expensive to occupy.
- Revise the London Plan Energy Strategy Targets
- Heat Networks
- Offset payments
- Energy Use Disclosure
