    Clean power to overtake fossil fuels in Britain in 2019

    Britain, the birth place of coal power, is set this year to use more electricity from zero-carbon sources such as wind, solar and nuclear than from fossil fuel plants for the first time, the country's National Grid said on Friday. Britain was home to the world's first coal-fuelled power plant in the 1880s, and coal was its dominant electricity source and a major economic driver for the next century. "The incredible progress that Britain has made in the past 10 years means we can now say 2019 will be the year zero-carbon power beats fossil fuel fired generation for the first time," National Grid CEO John Pettigrew said.

    Power Companies Want to Tap the Tesla Batteries in Your Home

    (Bloomberg) -- Here’s the latest wrinkle in the battery boom: National Grid Plc is paying consumers to tap electricity from their power-storage systems.The utility has about 40 customers in the program now in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and said expanding it to include Tesla Inc.’s Powerwall users may boost participation before the typical summertime peak in power consumption. National Grid is targeting 280 customers across the two states by early next month.The program may help the utility reduce capital costs by letting it access stored power from customers of Sunrun Inc. and other providers during periods of high demand. A single Tesla Powerwall battery in Rhode Island could earn as much as $1,000 a year, according to a spokesman for the automaker.“By using this technology at peak periods, we reduce our electric loads when power is most expensive,” said John Isberg, a vice president at National Grid. “This should provide environmental benefits and reduce infrastructure-investment costs.”Utilities in the Northeast have been among the early movers in incorporating solar and battery-storage systems into power grids. New England’s grid operator in February approved the addition of 145 megawatts of solar capacity, including some from Sunrun paired with batteries. And in Vermont, utility Green Mountain Power introduced a program this year to let 250 customers get two Tesla Powerwall batteries for $30 a month.National Grid’s program comes as costs for batteries have plunged, making storage systems a popular complement to rooftop solar. Outages triggered by extreme weather and wildfires across the country have also boosted demand for batteries.“We’re just getting to the point where they can provide these services cost effectively,” said Paul Wassink, a senior engineer at National Grid.To contact the reporter on this story: Brian Eckhouse in New York at beckhouse@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Doan at, Will Wade, Joe RyanFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Trump strikes "supportive" tone in meeting with British business leaders -sources

    U.S. President Donald Trump struck a positive, conciliatory tone with top British and U.S. business leaders at a meeting in London on Tuesday, sources familiar with the talks told Reuters, despite tensions between the two countries over China's Huawei. In a breakfast gathering with 10 executives at St James' Palace, Trump mentioned the strong historical ties between the two countries and praised British investment in the U.S. healthcare sector in particular, the sources said. Trump had earlier promised Britain a substantial post-Brexit trade deal, during a state visit to Britain being cast as a chance to celebrate Britain's "special relationship" with the United States and boost trade links.

    Britons set for £6 billion energy windfall from network curbs

    Britons could see a 6 billion pound cut in energy bills over five years from 2021, saving the average household 40 pounds per year, under plans to curb what gas and electricity network firms can pay shareholders. Regulator Ofgem, which introduced a price cap on standard energy bills in January after lawmakers said customers were being overcharged, is now targeting the operators whose network fees make up around a quarter of British household energy bills. Ofgem said it plans to cut the amount network firms pay their shareholders, known as the "cost of equity range" by almost 50% for the next regulatory period starting in 2021.

    Investors slap discount on UK utilities amid election worries

    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.

    British gas network company Cadent pays record penalty for supply failures

    British gas network company Cadent has paid a record penalty of 44 million pounds for failing to properly supply gas to some customers, regulator Ofgem said on Wednesday. The penalty, which will see Cadent pay 24 million pounds for improvements and compensation and set up a 20 million pound community fund, comes a week after Britain's opposition Labour party set out plans to nationalise the sector if it comes into power. Cadent Gas generated an operating profit of 724 million pounds in 2018.

    UK business group condemns Labour nationalisation plans, Brexit delay

    Plans by Britain's opposition Labour Party to nationalise utilities including the country's electricity grid will damage investment as well as hurting many small shareholders, one of the country's main business groups warned on Tuesday. Last week, Labour published plans to renationalise the country's 60-billion-pound energy networks, taking companies such as National Grid, Scottish Power and SSE into public ownership. Utilities warned this would damage investment, and on Tuesday the Confederation of British Industry's president, John Allan, said he feared the impact would spread beyond the businesses directly affected.

    Factbox: What would a Labour Party government nationalise, and how?

    Britain's opposition Labour Party wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's ruling Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation public policy. Despite a national election not being due until 2022, the prospect of nationalisation is worrying investors. Analysts have valued the regulated asset values of water and energy networks potentially facing nationalisation at around 125 billion pounds.

    National Grid says no new NYC natgas customers without Williams pipeline

On Wednesday, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) denied Williams' application for water quality certification, a permit the $1 billion NESE needs, because the project could harm aquatic life.

    "The proposals that Labour have set are very complex and from our perspective would be a massive distraction for the industry and would certainly slow down the progress in terms of things like infrastructure investments," Chief Executive John Pettigrew told Reuters on Thursday. Labour's nationalisation plan has prompted infrastructure owners to warn of damage to investment, high taxpayer costs and a slower transition to green energy.

    UK energy network firms rattled by Labour state ownership plan

    Britain's opposition Labour Party intends to take energy networks back into state ownership if elected, prompting infrastructure owners to warn of damage to investment, high taxpayer costs and a slower transition to green energy. Labour's shadow business and energy secretary, Rebecca Long-Bailey, late on Tuesday published party plans via twitter to renationalise the country's 60-billion-pound energy networks and establish a National Energy Agency. Britain's energy infrastructure, such as gas pipes and electricity cables, is owned by several firms including SSE, National Grid and Iberdrola's Scottish Power.
