Recommendation

LOCOG should establish dialogue with the utility sponsor (appointed by LOCOG) and the utility partner (appointed by the ODA) in 2008 to understand how the 20% Games time renewable energy target will be achieved. In this regard, LOCOG should consider the opportunity to link with the waste agenda, such as the use of biofuel from anaerobic digestion facilities.

LOCOG are not going to secure 20% renewable electricity at Games-time. It is unlikely that any temporary renewable energy generating capacity will be installed for the games. The only Games-time use of renewable electricity will be from small facilities already in place, such as at the RNSA facility at Weymouth. Whilst this recommendation has been technically achieved in that dialogue took place, the LOCOG target will not be achieved. CSL recommended that a joint solution for dealing with renewables and carbon reduction be pursued by all KS. LOCOG identified the potential for anaerobic digestion of organic waste to produce biofuel but no facilities will be built in time for LOCOG to take advantage of supply of local biofuel at Games-time. Closed (recommendations from the 2010 Annual Review take precedence)

Progress Made

LOCOG have engaged an engineering services partner who will address the provision of 20% renewable electricity at Games-time, achieving this target has been highlighted as a significant challenge. LOCOG have identified the potential for anaerobic digestion of organic waste to produce biofuel but are dependant on the facilities available to them. It is very unlikely that facilities will be built in time for LOCOG to take advantage of supply of local biofuel at Games-time. Progress made
