TfL appoints Baringa to advise on transport decarbonisation plans

Transport for London (TfL) has appointed Baringa Partners as its strategic energy advisor to help put its decarbonisation plans in place with the aim of a zero-emission rail travel by 2030.

The Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) sets out the overarching policy roadmap for road, rail and shipping emissions in London to be zero carbon by 2050.

The London Environment Strategy (LES) sets interim carbon ‘budgets’ for London over the next 15 years, providing shorter term targets by sector.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is looking to overhaul the capital’s transportation system to boost public transport to 40% of all travels made, with an increase in cycling from 2% to 6% and the introduction of car sharing platforms to help reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

Baringa will assist TfL as strategic energy advisor to prepare an energy purchasing strategy for the phased procurement of renewable energy power purchasing by TfL to meet the 2030 zero carbon target for rail.

The Energy Purchasing Strategy will set out the overall vision, a defined strategy for renewable energy sources and their procurement route.
