Question

Your draft Environment Strategy states that you will "tender for the delivery of an energy supply company aiming to offer fairer energy bills to Londoners as soon as possible". Can you give me a timeline for this tender and assure me that it will not begin until after the Environment Strategy consultation process has concluded?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I set out my intention to establish Energy for Londoners in my manifesto and have consulted extensively with stakeholders since being elected Mayor. 

I intend to start the tendering process soon, by testing the market, so that I can bring the benefits to Londoners as soon as possible. 

Our energy market is broken and Londoners, particularly those in fuel poverty, cannot wait for fairer energy bills.
