Nottingham-based, start-up company Mercia Power Response was formed by entrepreneurs Andrew Leach and Graham White to meet concerns that, under certain market conditions, the UK may struggle to meet power demand, especially in peak winter periods.  Mercia Power Response will develop fast response, local generation able to provide communities with power at times of peak demand or shortfalls in supply. From the Company’s headquarters in Nottingham, Managing Director Graham White plans to grow a team over time to help him develop and manage up to 150MW of capacity in the East Midlands and throughout the UK.
