UK energy supply: Russia's bullish forecast unlikely in medium term

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been quoted saying that by 2010 10% of UK gas demand is likely to be sourced from Russian imports. Whilst Russian gas will no doubt assume greater prominence in the UK over time, Mr Putin's forecast appears extremely bullish given the availability of geographically closer gas sources and is unlikely to materialize in the short to medium term.

UK energy supply: winter of discontent likely for only a few

Sir Digby Jones has provoked heated comment about the potential return to the 'three day week' of the 1970s this winter as a result of gas supply constraints brought on by a failure of UK energy policy. While he is correct to say that the largest consumers of gas are at risk of being cut off, they are likely to switch off their own gas supplies long before this on the basis of high costs alone.

In a year where energy and its environmental consequences have had a very high profile in the news, and with high prices impacting both consumers and industry, it is surprising that energy seems unlikely to become an issue for the upcoming UK general election.

UK energy: BETTA will be a barrier to renewables

The new arrangements mirror the NETA system already in place in England and Wales, which has driven down consumer prices. However, NETA also penalizes renewable generators, who are unable to predict their output. Unless the government ensures BETTA contains measures to protect these operators, the UK will have serious trouble meeting its carbon emissions targets.

UK energy: buyers right to bemoan high prices

The EEF, a trade association of UK manufacturers, has voiced to the government its concerns over high energy prices. It stated members are faced with surging energy prices that have risen by up to 45%. Datamonitor considers that rather than asking the government for help, it should be asking the government to account for how it allowed this to occur.
