London to expand 100-year-old power plant to run ‘Tube’ railway
The new gas-fired engines…
[Odd because it apparently has RR gas turbines. 117MW]
“This important investment in London’s growing low carbon technology sector will not only help power our Tube network, but will also reduce pressure on the National Grid, cut utility bills for local residents, and reduce air pollution from boilers,” Johnson said in a statement..
No details, where the devil resides.
Transport is notoriously misrepresented on energy efficiency. Apples and apples are hard to find but far easier than actual data.
This was a pastime interest of mine for many years, growing out of finding nonsense claims in the media and literature. The appearance of The Internet hasn’t helped, made taking action against individuals or broadcasters much harder, now more or less impractical.
What is Boris up to if anything? What is really going on with transport in the London area?
