UK recommendation for Merck's Simponi but it may struggle to make an impact

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has recommended Simponi for psoriatic arthritis. Based on this, Datamonitor believes that the drug will gain further positive recommendations in other rheumatology indications. However, while Simponi does have dosing advantages over other approved biologics, it is unlikely to make a huge impact on the UK market.

UK renewable ambitions are gravely misplaced and unlikely to be met

In the Renewable Energy Strategy Paper of 2009, the government set out its ambitious renewable targets with a lead scenario that places UK power output from renewables at 30% by 2020. As it stands, however, these ambitions are misplaced, with the UK currently unlikely to deliver its renewable commitment of 15% by 2020.

UK renewables offer attractive returns for businesses and opportunities for innovative utilities

The Carbon Trust estimates average returns of 11-12% for businesses investing in UK renewables, but companies need to consider the stability of support schemes and should trial technologies prior to committing. The move to decentralized supply should be embraced by utilities, especially new entrants, and requires innovative strategies in order to be successful.

UK renewables up 20% in 2012 but emissions rise

New figures released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) show that renewable energy generation in the UK increased by 20% in 2012. Manufacturing emissions were reduced, mainly due to the slow economic climate in Europe, but despite this overall UK emissions still rose by around 4.7% due to increased generation from coal power stations.

UK renewables: Ofgem's philosophy must be changed

Ofgem's remit is to develop a fair electricity market that provides the lowest possible cost to the consumer. However, this approach will not produce a viable renewables market. Rather than circumventing Ofgem, the UK government should work with the regulator to develop a support mechanism that will allow the market to flourish.

UK renewables: power by the people, for the people?

With new housing developments requiring renewable generation capacity and communities banding together to invest in wind farms, green community power schemes seem to be an increasingly viable proposition. While a grid composed of completely decentralized, carbon-neutral power sources is still only a vision, these cases do bring it slightly closer to reality.

UK renewables: to band or not to band?

The UK government signaled early this year that it would put forward proposals to band the Renewables Obligation, thereby effectively selecting winners and losers from an array of renewable technologies and awarding them differentiated renewable obligation certificates. As energy suppliers and generators await the banding outcome, debate as to the most viable and practicable approach rages.

UK renewables: whistling into the wind

The main UK electricity suppliers do not have the plans in place to match either the potential of the UK renewables market or its regulations under the Renewables Obligation. Electricity suppliers need to dramatically scale up their plans if this market opportunity is not to be taken by someone else.
