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.

RWE: barking up the wrong tree

RWE [RWE.F], one of Germany's leading energy utilities, believes that it can help the country meet its tough carbon-emissions targets by building "next-generation" lignite-fired power stations. In Datamonitor's opinion, this has no grounding in reality as it would require absolutely unrealistic levels of improvement on the currently existing technology.

UK wind power: Whinash protest could be first of many

Plans to build 27 wind turbines close to two areas of outstanding natural beauty in the north of England have provoked a storm of controversy in the region. However, if the UK government is serious about renewables generating 10% of the country's energy needs by 2010, it must appreciate that the Whinash dispute will be just the tip of the iceberg, as scores of new wind farms would be required.

EDF: caught between the devil and the deep blue sea?

The complicated wrangling over EDF's stake in Italian generator Edison looks set to be resolved soon. If EDF sells its stake, it could pave the way for Spanish utility Endesa to boost its presence in Italy significantly. The other option would see the Italian government remove EDF's contentious voting restriction. Enel could then get strategically useful access to the French power market.

Renewable energy: a question of supply and demand

The interaction between wholesale and retail energy markets is hindering development of green energy in much of Europe. The increasing demand from end users for green electricity is not assisting the development of renewable generation, but resulting in an unnecessary premium. Consumers are only adopting green labeled electricity if they can exploit the subsidies that drive green generation.

UK wind farms: all at sea

The government is being put under pressure to help meet the costs of connecting off-shore wind turbines to the national grid. This is not primarily a question of sheer cost, but a lack of confidence in the ability to sell the power. The government should be clear on the level of support it is prepared to give, and then allow developers to decide whether or not to proceed without any further fuss.

UK energy: power to the people

A key action for the re-elected Labour government is to develop a clear policy towards nuclear and renewables build, although other aspects of energy policy also need to be fully addressed during Labour's third term.

Poweo: the curious investment in power generation

French energy retail new entrant Poweo is planning to invest in power generation because supply is tightening in the wholesale market. However, life is not easy for a new entrant and Poweo should not have to take on the financial worry of such an investment. The fact that is has done so raises questions either about its management or the French wholesale market.

Edison/EDF: the end of the affair

Edison, Italy's second largest power generator, will be jointly owned by France's EDF and Milan-based AEM. The deal resolves the wrangle over EDF's stake in the firm, and offers Italian power companies entry into the French market. The deal still has to be approved by the EU commission, though this should not be a major hurdle, and the outcome is clearly good news for EDF.
