Boris to train up energy efficiency advisors

Boris to train up energy efficiency advisors
London mayor Boris Johnson has announced plans to train up jobless Londoners so they can help the city become more energy efficient, it has been reported.

His plans would see an academy built where the unemployed, including those who have lost their jobs due to the economic crisis, can gain 'green' skills, according to the Guardian.

This he said, would not only alleviate London's unemployment rate but help it to become a more environmentally-friendly city.

Mr Johnson said the academy would be a "huge benefit to this city at a time when we expect people to be joining the ranks of unemployment".

He added: "They will need retraining and they will be retrained in an industry which has a huge potential for growth."

The idea is part of a more general plan by the Conservative mayor to make London greener.

He claims that his proposals to give a boost to the capital's low-carbon technology could "help replace in the economy of London the activity that quite frankly we may lose in the next 18 months or so in the City of London".
