IBM and British start-up Cera Care plan a six-month pilot to test whether lidar laser sensors, used to help self-driving cars "see", can enable elderly people to stay in their homes for longer - without compromising privacy. Lidar systems that work by using laser light pulses to render fine-grained images of surroundings, have typically been used to make high-resolution maps, catch speeding motorists and more recently help automated cars navigate through the streets. Jack Narcotta, a senior smart home analyst at Strategy Analytics, said lidar lasers were one of the more advanced solutions for elderly monitoring, but were still in the very early stages.
British utility stocks are trading at a growing discount to euro zone peers as investors fear the country's deepening political crisis could trigger a general election that ushers in renationalisation of the industry, worth $76 billion (£59.9 billion). The opposition Labour Party has said it wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation policies. Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager on the global and international equities team at Schroders said those fears were "another overhang" for utilities, already subject to a discount like other UK assets because of Brexit uncertainty.

German energy group Innogy, which is being broken up by parent RWE and rival E.ON, on Tuesday said operating profit fell more than a fifth in the first quarter as it continued to lose customers in Britain. "In the company's UK retail business ... the persistently poor market environment resulted in a decline in customer numbers," Innogy said on Tuesday, keeping its 2019 outlook. In Britain, Innogy lost 103,000 customers in the first three months.
The FTSE 100 ended down 0.6% while the FTSE 250 tumbled 1.2% on Monday, led by a slump in Metro Bank. The breakdown last week has not proved temporary and it seems China is prepared to go toe-to-toe with the U.S. on this," markets.com analyst Neil Wilson said. Vodafone tumbled 5.2% on its worst day in nearly five years after The Times reported that the world's second-biggest mobile operator was set to slash dividends to pay for auctions for mobile phone airwaves in Germany and Italy.

FRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - E.ON and Centrica, two of Britain's so-called "big six" energy providers, warned on Monday of a toughening retail market, raising the chance of cost cuts in response to falling profits. Britain's major energy utilities have faced competition from small, more flexible rivals entering the fray while the government has put a cap on electricity prices, causing several companies to cut their earnings outlooks. "We will have to talk to the regulator," E.ON finance chief Marc Spieker told journalists on Monday after reporting first-quarter results and flagging cost cuts at its British unit, where profits fell by 60 percent.
The company, whose British Gas unit is Britain's largest energy supplier, said these factors would impact financial performance in the first half of 2019, but maintained its full-year outlook for operating cash flow and net debt. The company said it expects to achieve 2019 adjusted operating cash flow in the 1.8-2 billion pound range but said the tough trading conditions would put pressure on the outlook for the year.

British energy supplier Pure Planet, in which oil giant BP has a 25 percent stake, has cut its average annual dual gas and electricity price by 2.4 percent, it said on Wednesday.

The steady decline of British wholesale gas prices shows no sign of reversing this summer, which should provide some relief to households when it is reflected in a lower price cap on energy tariffs this autumn. A cap on default electricity and gas bills - a flagship policy of British Prime Minister Theresa May to end what she called "rip-off" prices - came into force in January to set a maximum price suppliers can charge consumers on certain tariffs. Energy market regulator Ofgem said it would remove around 1 billion pounds of overcharging from consumer bills by forcing suppliers to limit the price of their default tariffs to the level of the cap, or below.

The number of British customers switching energy supplier in the first quarter of 2019 rose by 12 percent compared with the same period last year, data from industry group Energy UK showed, despite a government price cap which began in January. Energy regulator Ofgem was told by parliament last year to set the price limit after lawmakers said customers on the most commonly used standard tariffs were being overcharged for electricity and gas. Prime Minister Theresa May had called the tariffs a "rip-off".
CALGARY , April 15, 2019 /CNW/ - Following a record-setting cold winter, Albertans are reminded that the Government of Alberta's Winter Moratorium, a program in place to prevent utility disconnections, will be lifted on April 15, 2019 . Albertans with outstanding utility bills are encouraged to contact their provider to make or set-up payment arrangements prior to issuance of a Pending Disconnection Notice.
