    [$$] Focus on new trains criticised by rolling stock chief

    The UK government’s emphasis on putting new trains on to the network is “not sustainable” for the industry, the chief executive of a railway rolling stock company has warned. Trains can run for more than 30 years, so the replacement of relatively new stock leaves rolling-stock companies with a surplus of idle off-lease trains. As an example, Ms Grant pointed to the fleet replacement on South Western Railway last year, when “new displaced new”.

    Why UK energy firms are upping prices while government fights to keep them down

    An increase in wholesale energy prices pushed Britain's Centrica (CNA.L) to announce its second price rise of the year this week even as regulators prepare to cap prices to help millions of households struggling with rising costs. All of Britain's top energy suppliers have increased prices since Prime Minister Theresa May lashed out at what she called "rip-off energy prices" last October and pledged to cap prices in the biggest market intervention since privatisation almost 30 years ago. Wholesale gas prices spiked to their highest level in at least 10 years as the country was hit by a cold weather snap dubbed the beast from the east in February, while the heatwave felt across the country this summer has also led to higher than usual demand for electricity.

    Centrica's British Gas to raise energy prices for second time this year

    Centrica (CNA.L) will raise its standard energy prices for British Gas customers for the second time this year, it said on Wednesday, blaming rising wholesale costs. Around 3.5 million customers, on its dual fuel standard variable tariff, will be hit with a 3.8 percent price increase from Oct. 1. The rise comes as energy regulator Ofgem prepares to implement a price cap on standard tariffs by the end of the year to combat what the government has called "rip off" energy prices.

    [$$] Subsidies for ‘mini’ nuclear power plant backed by review

    in the UK should be offered the same subsidies as those provided to offshore wind to help commercialise the nascent industry, an independent group of experts has recommended. The proposal is among several contained in a report by an expert finance working group appointed by the government last year to advise on how small nuclear reactor projects, which range from micro to 600 megawatt reactors, could raise private investment. The government in June committed up to £56m to kick-start research and development into the most advanced types of small reactor technologies, most of which will not be commercially available until the late 2020s.

    Run your dishwasher when the sun shines: dynamic power pricing grows

    In such scenarios, algorithms in smart appliances automatically respond to price drops on wholesale spot markets caused by higher supplies of wind and solar power, saving households money and balancing the electricity market. This may be many years away, but it is the future envisioned by the European Union, which wants to make the electricity system more efficient as the continent switches from predictable fossil-fuel power generation to intermittent renewables. Most utilities have long offered cheaper night-time tariffs, but new EU rules expected in 2020 will require them to provide more flexible options that encourage customers to use power during sunny or windy periods, at varied times of day or when businesses are shut at weekends.

    [$$] Scorecard: ‘Positive surprises’ in strong Q2 earnings season

    Over 60 per cent of companies in the US and Europe have reported second quarter figures and nearly half of those in Japan have reported results for their fiscal first quarter. More than half of all companies that have reported so far have beaten earnings per share estimates, according to the number-crunchers at JPMorgan. With the exception of real estate, all US sectors have so far reported double-digit earnings growth, with 86 per cent of S&P 500 companies having beaten EPS estimates — the highest proportion recorded since JPMorgan started compiling the figures in 2009.

    France's EDF plans maintenance at Fessenheim reactors in 2019

    French utility EDF published on Tuesday the planned maintenance schedule for its two Fessenheim reactors in 2019, signalling that the reactors could be operational until the second half of next year. The reactors, which are the oldest in France, are expected to shut down when the new generation Flamanville 3 EPR reactor starts production. EDF said last week that problems with weldings had forced it to delay the start-up date for the troubled Flamanville 3 to the second quarter of 2020.

    Ofgem gives go-ahead to National Grid for Hinkley project

    Britain's energy market regulator has given the go-ahead to National Grid (NG.L) to build a power grid upgrade to connect the new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset. The Hinkley–Seabank (HSB) project will cost £650 million and allow for the safe connection of EDF Energy's (EDF.PA) planned Hinkley Point C nuclear power station. National Grid said it will review Ofgem's decision an consider all options before Ofgem formalises its proposals in the grid operator's licence later this year or early in 2019.

    EDF Wooing Pension Funds to Finance Sizewell U.K. Nuclear Plant

    The developer of Britain’s first nuclear power station in more than three decades has approached 12 pension funds about helping finance a sister plant on the other side of the country. Electricite de France SA is working on ways to pay for its Sizewell C project in East Anglia that will make it cheaper than the Hinkley Point C nuclear plant it’s building on the coast of Southwest England. EDF hopes that it can make a substantial dent in the costs of the new project by copying Hinkley’s design at the Sizewell facility and by getting the government and investors to shoulder some of the construction risks, according to Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson, managing director of nuclear development at EDF’s U.K. unit.

    EDF ups costs for Flamanville reactor after finding more flaws

    France's state-controlled power group EDF (EDF.PA) pushed back the timetable for its Flamanville nuclear reactor project by a year, after it found further flaws, and added the project would now cost more than previously forecast. EDF said Flamanville would now cost 400 million euros (£355.5 million) more than previously estimated, taking total construction costs to 10.9 billion euros from 10.5 billion - more than three times its original budget. Reactors such as Flamanville are important in France since the country relies on nuclear energy for about 75 percent of its power, and politicians have debated whether France should cut back on nuclear energy.

    EDF PR : Welds in the main secondary system of the Flamanville EPR

    As of 25 July 2018, EDF has inspected 148 of the 150 welds in the main secondary system[1] of the Flamanville EPR and continued to exchange with the French Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN), as announced in previous press releases dated 10 April and 31 May 2018[2]. In addition, EDF has decided to rework a further 20 welds, even though they do not have any defects. These welds do not comply with the "high quality" requirements[3] defined by EDF during the EPR design phase (break preclusion principle).

    Britain to tighten foreign takeover rules amid China worries

    Britain is planning the biggest change to takeover rules in almost two decades, giving the government new powers to block deals in all sectors of the economy to prevent UK companies in sensitive industries from falling into foreign hands. The business minister, Greg Clark, wants to tighten the existing rules, which are limited to large transactions, to cover all British companies including small firms. The changes mark a new era of government oversight of business activity in the world's fifth-largest economy which has traditionally been one of the most open markets to global mergers and acquisitions.

    China says hopes Britain provides fair investment environment

    China hopes Britain can provide a fair investment environment for foreign firms and oppose any sort of protectionism, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday in response to proposed tougher British rules to protect national security. Britain is planning to create new powers to block or unwind foreign takeovers amid concerns that investment in certain sectors of the economy such as defence and technology could compromise national security. The decision to tighten the screening of foreign investment rules marks a further shift in policy for the world's fifth-largest economy which has traditionally been one of the most open markets to global mergers and acquisitions.
