Stadium operators LS185 has put out a tender to purchase a solar membrane to cover the London Stadium roof.

The tender notice says “London Stadium intends procuring the supply and install of photovoltaic materials on it’s c.24,000 sqm roof. This high-profile building offers a fantastic opportunity to showcase cutting edge technology. The key driver for the project is to significantly reduce carbon emissions, in line with a commitment to reach ‘net zero’ carbon position by 2030. Energy would mostly be used to meet stadium day-to-day needs, but storage or export of energy will be considered. Companies should note that there will be limitations on the weight of the photovoltaic material due to allowable roof loading (e.g. a lightweight material may offer a more viable solution). Installation would be expected to take place during 2023.”

The capital cost of the project is estimated to cost £4m over two years

A freedom of information request by 6foot2 previously revealed that the London stadium consumed 12,121,179 Kwh of electricity in a 12 month period 2021-2022 and cost the public owners £1,938,458.43 with West Ham contributing £49,936 for their club shop and office space usage

In the LLDC draft budget submission, London Stadium saves they plan to reduce emissions by 175 tonnes of CO2 per year between 2023-2026
