    UK regulator to finish review of Rough gas storage closure before year's end

    Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said on Tuesday it expects to complete a review before the end of the year of Centrica's decision to close its Rough gas storage site. In June, Centrica (CNA.L) said it wanted to close the site because of the deterioration of the facility, which has come to the end of its design life. Rough is Britain's biggest gas storage site.

    Record close for FTSE as sterling slides on Brexit impasse

    Britain's top share index enjoyed a record close on Thursday, boosted by a fresh fall in Brexit bellwether sterling after the European Union's chief negotiator Michel Barnier said talks are in deadlock. Britain's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended the day up 0.3 percent, at 7,556.24 points, its highest ever closing level. Sterling slid against the dollar (GBP=) as Barnier said talks were in an "impasse" due to an elusive compromise over the amount Britain would contribute to the EU budget, though Prime Minister May said talks were making good progress.

    UK ask regulator to set price cap to mend "broken energy market"

    Prime Minister Theresa May first proposed a price cap on the energy sector earlier this year, the biggest market intervention since its privatisation almost 30 years ago. "I have been clear that our broken energy market has to change – it has to offer fairer prices for millions of loyal customers who have been paying hundreds of pounds too much," May said on Thursday. The draft bill published on Thursday said the price cap would initially last until 2020, with the potential to be extended by up to three years if needed.

    UK's Ofgem says will work with government to lower energy prices

    Britain's energy regulator Ofgem said on Wednesday it would work with the government on Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to cap the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs, after it moved to protect the most vulnerable households. May stunned the industry last week when she announced a plan to impose price caps on standard variable tariffs (SVT), the basic rate that energy suppliers charge if a customer does not opt for a specific fixed-term deal. Around 70 percent of households are on SVTs.

    UK energy companies left in dark over price cap plan

    A British government plan to cap prices has wiped hundreds of millions of pounds off the value of household energy suppliers but details are scant and doubts remain about its implementation. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday that a cap would be imposed on standard variable tariffs (SVT), the basic rates that suppliers charge if a customer does not opt for a specific payment plan for gas and electricity. Under the proposals, energy market regulator Ofgem would be responsible for setting the new cap which would be a temporary measure kept under review.

    Centrica boss urges UK to rethink consumer energy price cap plan

    Centrica (CNA.L), Britain's biggest domestic electricity and gas supplier, urged the government on Thursday to be more imaginative in its approach to restructuring the market, saying plans to cap prices would lead to less competition and less choice. Prime Minister Theresa May stunned the industry on Wednesday when she announced a plan to impose price caps on standard variable tariffs, the basic rate that energy suppliers charge if a customer does not opt for a specific fixed term deal. Centrica boss Iain Conn said he understood that the market needed further restructuring but added that instead the regulator should scrap SVTs altogether, forcing the industry to work harder to win new customers through competition.

    British PM May orders energy price cap, shares tumble

    Prime Minister Theresa May said she would impose a price cap on the energy market to help millions of households struggling with rising prices, hitting shares in the leading providers hard. May had proposed a price cap on the sector earlier this year, the biggest market intervention since privatisation almost 30 years ago, but the plan was thrown into doubt after her ruling Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority in an election in June. Energy bills have doubled in Britain over the past decade to an average of about 1,200 pounds ($1,500) a year, putting the biggest providers in the sights of politicians.
