    European utilities retrench as cross-border deals lose appeal

    PARIS/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - European utility companies are retrenching in their home markets and looking to unwind debt-financed cross-border merger deals as increasingly nationalist governments balk at foreign ownership of strategic power supplies. Hungary was one of the first European countries to turn against foreign ownership of utilities back in 2013 but there are growing signs that borders are springing up again in an industry that has struggled to make international deals pay off. Several European utilities were lining up to buy German utility RWE's (RWEG.DE) subsidiary Innogy (IGY.DE) but in March RWE and domestic rival E.ON (EONGn.DE) agreed to carve up the renewable energy firm themselves in an all-German deal.

    Oil major Total pays $1.7 billion for French electricity retailer

    Oil company Total (TOTF.PA) said it will buy a majority stake in French electricity retailer Direct Energie (DIREN.PA) in a 1.4 billion euro ($1.73 billion) deal that beefs up its challenge to state-owned market leader EDF (EDF.PA). The deal is part of Total's strategy to grow its low-carbon energy assets to 20 percent of total assets by 2035 from 5 percent today and comes as other global oil and gas majors also shift to more renewable energy and electricity. "This friendly takeover is part of the group's strategy to expand along the entire gas-electricity value chain and to develop low-carbon energies," CEO Patrick Pouyanne said.

    EDF Energy becomes second UK firm to raise energy prices

    EDF Energy said on Thursday it would raise its energy prices in Britain, the second firm this week to announce an increase, despite pressure from the government to keep bills down. The British arm of French utility EDF (EDF.PA) said the rise was due to higher costs associated with supplying electricity, echoing comments made by rival Centrica (CNA.L), which announced its rise on Tuesday. "EDF Energy continues to face pressures with energy, policy and the costs of installing smart meters all increasing significantly since last summer," it said in a statement.

    ASN imposes test on more weldings at EDF's Flamanville reactor

    French state-controlled utility EDF (EDF.PA) will have to inspect more weldings at the nuclear plant it is building in Flamanville, France after flaws were discovered in the weldings of the reactor's secondary circuit, nuclear regulator ASN said. EDF said on Tuesday that problems with Flamville's weldings were worse than first expected and may impact the cost and startup of the long-delayed project. The utility will comment on the start-up schedule at the end of May, after it has verified all 150 weldings in the secondary circuit that conducts steam from the steam generator to the plant's turbines.

    Britain's Co-op to buy Flow Energy as energy price cap looms

    Britain's Co-operative Energy will buy fellow energy supplier Flow Energy, the two companies said on Tuesday, with the smaller firm warning it would have struggled under the government’s looming price cap. Flow Energy, the main business of Flowgroup (FLOWF.L), which is listed on London Stock Exchange's AIM junior market, will be sold for 9.25 million pounds ($13.10 million), FlowGroup said. Flow Energy has around 130,000 customers and is one of the more than 50 suppliers challenging Britain's big six energy providers - Centrica's (CNA.L) British Gas, SSE (SSE.L), E.ON (EONGn.DE), EDF Energy (EDF.PA), Innogy's (IGY.DE) Npower and Iberdrola's (IBE.MC) Scottish Power.

    French consumers group says EDF monopoly leads to higher power prices

    French consumers group UFC Que Choisir said the virtual monopoly on electricity generation in France held by the country's state-owned utility EDF (EDF.PA) leads to higher prices, and it called for tighter regulation. UFC said in a study that when wholesale power prices are low, EDF systematically underutilised its nuclear plants, which leads to more expensive fossil-fuel fired power generation assets to be used, and in turn results in higher power prices. The consumer group said it estimated EDF had boosted its revenue by about 2.3 billion euros (2.00 billion pounds) in this way between 2012 and 2017.

    Exclusive - Italy's Edison launches spin-off of oil & gas unit: sources

    Italian energy group Edison (EDNn.MI), part of French utility EDF (EDF.PA), is preparing the sale of its oil and gas unit, the latest power producer to abandon fossil fuels to focus on its retail business, four industry sources said. Edison has selected investment banks Rothschild (ROTH.PA) and Perella Weinberg to organise an auction for the exploration and production division, which could be valued at $2 billion (1.43 billion pounds) to $3 billion, one of the sources said. The company has been looking to increase the size of its domestic electricity and gas retail business, betting on the market opening up to more competition, with retail energy customers increasingly able to chose their supplier.

    French rail unions take on Macron with mass rolling strikes

    French rail workers launched a series of nationwide strikes on Tuesday, threatening months of transport disruption in the sternest challenge yet to President Emmanuel Macron's efforts to modernise Europe's second biggest economy. State-run rail company SNCF, which Macron wants to overhaul, said 48 percent of the workers needed for the network to run smoothly were absent, as they joined the protests against plans to trim benefits including job guarantees and generous pensions. "I do understand why they're striking," said Marie Charles, a Paris commuter.

    French rail unions in showdown with Macron in rolling strike

    French railway services were decimated on Tuesday, the first day of rolling strikes which are due to run for months in a serious test for President Emmanuel Macron's resolve to modernise the French economy. The four main rail unions have called two days of strikes in every five days for the next three months to protest against a shake-up of the national SNCF rail monopoly before it is opened up to competition as required by EU law. The last time a French president squared off against rail unions over workers' benefits it ended badly.
