"There's a lot of flat space up there on the roof of the White House – it's a nice, big Southern exposure. There's no reason that they couldn't produce a lot, probably all, of the hot water that they use, and some good share of the electricity," McKibben said. "This will be a great opportunity, a fun opportunity, for him to re-connect with all those people who have been hoping for action."

Prince Charles has long been a keen advocate for renewable energy, which he says already provides almost a quarter of his household’s electricity. He announced three years ago that Clarence House, which is situated in Pall Mall, had become carbon neutral through carbon offsetting and the use of energy-efficient boilers. He has also converted his Jaguar and Land Rover to run on biodiesel derived from used cooking oil and his classic Aston Martin runs on bioethanol fuel made from surplus British wine.
