The West London Zero Carbon Energy Project was established to implement one of the recommendations of the ‘Green City in the West’ report: “West London should reduce its carbon emissions from electricity to zero by 2032″. The report was published by the West London Sustainability and Climate Change Commission in August 2018. The report’s recommendations and this project are a cornerstone of West London’s contribution to Race to Zero. This has a fast growing number of supporters in the run-up to the COP26 conference.
The project was established with the purpose of accelerating the transition to zero carbon emissions for West London businesses and public-sector organisations. 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.
We plan to reduce carbon emissions by providing a platform to buy green electricity at cheaper prices than current fossil fuel contracts. Alongside this we will run energy innovation workshops to support your switch to green energy, promote energy efficiency best practices and to introduce distributed energy solutions. Through West London Business we are providing local companies with a free carbon calculator to measure your carbon emissions and plan reductions to zero on an annual basis. Alongside reducing emissions from electricity, we will also champion reducing carbon emissions from heating to zero by 2050, by looking at switching the gas pipeline to a hydrogen pipeline as an example. We are now actively engaging West London companies like yours to get started on your Race to Zero journey by making the simple switch from buying brown to green energy. You will be in good company – see our map here.
Contact us today by clicking the ‘start’ button opposite for a detailed briefing on your green energy options so you can make an informed choice as you switch from brown to green energy. Share with us your energy consumption data and any carbon reduction projects you have run to date, so other West London businesses can learn from you. Spread the word amongst your peers. And sign your business up to a wider Race to Zero commitment to reduce your whole carbon footprint.
