Business group calls on next Mayor of London to address energy supply issues

As residents in Ealing go to polls to vote on who will be the next Mayor of London, business group West London Business (WLB) has released a manifesto calling out what it considers to be the key priorities for London’s new Mayor.

Among the areas which include employment, innovation, climate change and education is the need to address energy supply in the local area.

Andrew Dakers, CEO, West London Business, said: “Absolutely critical to West London’s contribution to the capital and UK’s growth is energy supply – the latest research indicates urgent grid reinforcement upwards of 2,300 MVA is needed. We urge the new Mayor to work with WLB and other stakeholders in securing accelerated investment from National Grid in the high voltage transmission network serving West London.”

Mr Dakers added: “I encourage Londoners based in the west of our capital to get out and vote next Thursday 2nd May, to have a say on who will be next to lead the greatest city in the world.”
