LONDON -- One of central London’s biggest renewable energy projects has been installed by BT to mark the beginning of Spring - an urban installation of wind and solar power generation set to change the London skyline and herald a greener, cleaner future.

The pilot scheme centres on an installation of two 6kW micro wind turbines and a 15kW solar panel array on the roof of BT’s Colombo House building in Southwark, South East London.

The wind turbines are mounted on nine metre masts, and are clearly visible from the street and surrounding buildings. The scheme forms part of BT’s wider commitment to deliver an 80 per cent reduction in the carbon consumption of the company’s UK operations by 2016.

Richard Tarboton, BT Energy & Carbon Director, said: “We are always looking for ways to cut carbon, and renewable energy is an important part of our strategy. The pilot scheme at Colombo House is an important step in establishing the long-term viability of renewable energy generation in urban settings.”
