UK energy: a surprise election non-selection

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%.

UK energy: cutting in the middleman

Third party intermediaries (TPIs) are currently involved in the majority of power and gas volume contracting in UK B2B energy markets, and this is likely to increase further with time. Indeed, their position is cemented by market forces that have driven prices and volatility to record levels, as well as by an increasing drive towards sophisticated energy risk management products.

UK energy: don't bet the farm on emissions trading

As outlined in its newly-published energy review, the UK government has announced that its policy instrument of choice to encourage new nuclear build is a strong carbon market in Europe.

UK energy: fuel poverty focus could impact market dynamic

Fuel poverty (spending more than 10% of income on fuel) is rising, leading to calls for more investment in energy efficiency. However, recent Datamonitor research shows that utility executives are worried that more of the burden will fall on them. It would be worrying for competition if they were right, but the same research suggested that they may be being a little over anxious.
