Britain's largest energy supplier Centrica cancelled its 2019 dividend and cut costs in anticipation of an increase in non payments by customers and a drop in demand due to the COVID-19 outbreak, sending its shares to record lows. "We also expect to see an increase in working capital outflows and customer bad debt, as certain customer segments defer payments due to the reduction of household incomes and business revenues," Centrica said on Thursday. Britain's energy trade association Energy UK earlier this week called on the government to offer financial support to energy suppliers to help them offer payment breaks to those struggling with bills.
The British government has agreed emergency measures with the energy industry to ensure vulnerable households remain supplied with power during the disruption caused by the novel coronavirus, it said on Thursday.

The agreement has been signed by all UK domestic energy suppliers and will come into force immediately.
