Can London be powered by PV cells?

I began by assuming that if fossil fuels came to an end then the western world would return to a minor dark age. Having researched green technologies I think that there are actually plenty of readily available technologies already available to us and I now think that we would quickly adapt to life with only green energy systems.

I am interested in buildings being self sufficient in terms of energy consumption. I have explored how much of different green energy systems would be needed to support London and to see if this could be condensed into a relatively small area.

Here I have begun by looking at PV Cells and then gone on to look at Wind Turbines and Anaerobic Digesters. I looked at using 1 Canada Square as a house for these power sources.

It then seemed sensible to try and combine all three technologies to come up with a total power centre for Canary Wharf.
