Britain's government must act urgently to ensure a price cap on domestic energy prices is in place by next winter to help fix the country's broken energy market, a parliamentary committee said on Tuesday. Prime Minister Theresa May said in October she would impose controls to tackle what she called "rip-off energy prices" - home power bills have doubled in Britain over the past decade to an average of about 1,150 pounds a year. The government must pass a law before Britain's energy regulator Ofgem can set a cap, and Ofgem said last month this must be passed by the summer if the cap is to be in place to keep bills lower next winter.
Britain's latest auction for back-up electricity cleared well below expectations but without many new gas projects securing agreements which are thought to be needed to help bridge the gap when coal and nuclear plants come offline next decade. Thursday's auction for 2021/22 supply cleared at 8.40 pounds ($11.71) per kilowatt (kW) per year, National Grid's website showed, well below the 15 to 25 pounds range which analysts had forecast. Out of the 50.4 GW of capacity agreements awarded, 48.4 GW was existing capacity and interconnectors.
Hydro energy output also rose to 2.5 TWh from 2.1 TWh a year ago. Power suppliers in Britain have been under pressure from the emergence of small and aggressive rivals as well as being threatened by a price cap on retail prices proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May's government. Britain's "big six" energy suppliers, Centrica's (CNA.L) British Gas, Iberdrola's (IBE.MC) Scottish Power, E.ON (EONGn.DE), EDF Energy (EDF.PA), SSE and npower, are all currently struggling.
U.K.’s biggest utilities may look like real bargains compared with their European peers. So why aren’t investors piling in?
Britain's blue-chip index fell on Thursday, led lower by utilities and a decline for Associated British Foods (ABF.L) after warning that profit at its sugar business would fall more than previously forecast. The FTSE (.FTSE) ended 0.3 percent down at 7,700.96 points and the mid-cap index (.FTMC) finished with a 0.5 percent fall. Utilities were weaker after a junior minister told a parliamentary committee that Britain hoped to pass laws to allow the capping of the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs for millions of households by the summer.
Britain hopes to pass laws to allow the capping of the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs for millions of households by the summer, a junior minister in the business department told a parliamentary committee on Wednesday. Prime Minister Theresa May said in October she would impose controls to tackle what she called "rip-off energy prices", sending shares in the leading providers tumbling. Ofgem said last week that the cap could be in place by Christmas 2018, provided parliament passed the necessary laws by the summer.
A government plan to cap the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs for millions of British households could come into effect in time for Christmas 2018, regulator Ofgem said on Wednesday. Prime Minister Theresa May said in October she would impose controls to tackle what she called "rip-off energy prices" - home power bills have doubled in Britain over the past decade to an average of about 1,150 pounds a year. Dermot Nolan, Ofgem chief executive, said for the measure to take effect by Christmas it would have to receive royal assent - meaning it officially becomes law - before Britain's lawmakers break for summer recess on July 20.

German energy company Innogy on Wednesday trimmed its operating profit forecast for 2017, citing a persistently difficult market environment for npower, its ailing British retail energy supply business. Having for years struggled with fierce competition in the local retail market, Innogy last month agreed to merge npower with the British retail unit of SSE, hoping to rid itself of the struggling business in the mid-term. "Unfortunately, the intensity of competition has not eased during the fourth quarter," Chief Financial Officer Bernhard Guenther told journalists during a call, adding that cutting costs was not enough to offset the tough market environment.

French President Emmanuel Macron plans to award multi-year grants for several U.S.-based scientists to relocate to France, his office said on Monday on the eve of a climate summit hosted by the president to raise finances to counter global warming. Macron unveiled the "Make our Planet Great Again" grants after President Donald Trump in June said he was pulling the United States out of an international accord to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that was brokered in Paris in 2015. Macron repeatedly tried to persuade the U.S. leader to reverse his decision.

German energy group Innogy (IGY.DE) will at some point pull out of the planned British retail supply joint venture with peer SSE (SSE.L), its chief executive said. Last week, the two groups announced plans to merge and list their British retail units to better compete with smaller rivals and reap badly-need synergies in a market with razor-thin margins. Innogy will hold a 34.4 percent stake in the combined entity, with SSE to own the rest, but Innogy Chief Executive Peter Terium said this structure would not last forever.
