London mayor Sadiq Khan has launched a new taskforce to expand the capital’s electric vehicle infrastructure just one week after a London Assembly committee called on him to do more to boost the number of chargers on London’s streets.
London’s councils are expecting to install over 2,600 charging points across the capital in the next financial year following a call by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and London cab drivers to install more chargers throughout the city.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has kickstarted his flagship Energy for Londoners scheme with a series of new initiatives to boost local energy use in the capital.
Sadiq Khan is to issue a tender for the delivery of an energy supply company in London, suggesting concerns that the London mayor was preparing to row back on a manifesto pledge to create a publicly owned energy company were well-founded.
Sadiq Khan could be preparing to ditch plans for a clean energy supply company using local renewable generation in favour of a white label product run by a third party under its name, according to a London campaign group.
London’s deputy mayor for the environment Shirley Rodrigues has said that the mayor’s flagship energy scheme ‘Energy for Londoners’ is to go live by April.
