Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced a new efficiency scheme to cut carbon emissions and also potentially provide cheap energy in the capital.
Under the project, around ten flagship Low Carbon Zones will be created to deliver a 20.12 per cent carbon emission saving each by 2012.
The zones will primary act as the focus point for the mayor's target of cutting London's greenhouse gas emissions by 60 per cent by 2025.
Speaking at Prince Charles' May Day Summit on Climate Change, Mr Johnson assured that he is "fully signed-up" to combating climate change and protecting the planet.
The mayor explained that he will pursue the opportunity "aggressively", which could also create various "green collar jobs" in London.
"We are investing £3 million to kick start ten Low Carbon Zones which will champion the latest technologies and firmly place London on the world stage as a low carbon city," he said.
"These energy-busting zones will create an armada of flagships across London, focused on finding the most effective ways to rapidly cut carbon and slash energy bills."
In related news, the Scottish government recently increased the amount of money available to small-scale green energy projects in the country.
