Plans have been shelved to build a sustainable cheap energy wind turbine in east London's Olympic Park site, it has emerged.
The turbine, known as the Angel of Leyton, was supposed to meet 20 per cent of the site's energy needs, but has been scrapped after new safety rules and design changes rendered the project "no longer feasible".
The Olympic Delivery Authority said it learned from industry figures that there would be limited commercial interest in the cheap energy project and that it would not be appropriate for the planned location in Eton Manor.
According to the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012, the Olympic Delivery Authority will now have to find alternative means by which to meet its carbon emissions targets.
David Higgins, chief executive of the Olympic Delivery Authority, said: "Our focus is now on researching a number of alternative renewable energy options across the Olympic Park site to help contribute to these targets."
