Community energy groups across London have been actively working in their areas to deliver innovative carbon reduction and fuel poverty alleviation projects. The Mayor has supported groups through the introduction of the London Community Energy Fund (LCEF) with other 30 projects now in play across the capital – and more projects planned.
