    UK watchdog threatens full investigation into SSE, Npower utility merger

    Britain's competition watchdog said the planned merger of SSE (LSE: SSE.L - news) 's retail power and gas business in the UK with Npower, owned by German rival Innogy , could lead to higher prices for customers and warrants further scrutiny. The watchdog said the merger would be referred for a longer Phase 2 investigation unless the parties offer acceptable undertakings to address the competition concerns. "We know that competition in the energy market does not work as well as it might," said Rachel Merelie, senior director at the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

    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.

    Utilities step into blockchain to stay ahead of Europe's energy shakeup

    European utilities plan to begin some direct trades with one another using blockchain technology within months, hoping to stay ahead in a world in which individuals may eventually sell green energy to one another. The distributed ledger technology that underpins the bitcoin currency has already been tested by energy operators for wholesale trading, but it will go live with just a few selected electricity and gas contracts to start with. The initiative, Enerchain, is a forerunner of more possible uses of the technology by established energy players and wider options explored by a raft of start-ups to harness its potential - many of them years away from execution.

    Rough justice? UK snubs call for gas storage capacity review

    Britain has rebuffed calls from the gas industry for an urgent review of the country's gas storage capacity after a cold snap this month triggered warnings of supply shortages and gas prices spiked to their highest in at least a decade. Operators of gas storage sites, industries reliant on gas and developers of new storage projects have been asking for an inquiry since November, following the closure of the Rough site that provided 70 percent of Britain's gas storage capacity. The government says it is up to the market to determine whether it makes sense to invest in new gas storage and if there are any supply shortages, prices will rise sufficiently to attract more gas from elsewhere.

    Innogy's UK arm npower lost 155,000 domestic customers in 2017

    LONDON (Reuters) - npower, the British retail arm of German utility Innogy (IGY.DE), lost 155,000 domestic accounts last year amid the highest customer churn in the UK for several years, the firm said in its annual results on Monday. Npower's revenues for 2017 dropped by 76 million pounds ($106 million) to 6.027 billion pounds due to fierce competition between suppliers, it said in a statement. It had 4.56 million UK customer accounts at the end of 2017, down from 4.71 million a year earlier.

    German Innogy carve-up could complicate SSE's npower merger

    RWE and E.ON's (EONGN.DE) surprise carve up of Germany's Innogy (IGY.DE) could complicate a merger of SSE (SSE.L) and Innogy-owned npower to create Britain's second largest energy supplier, although both firms said it remained on track. Under Sunday's proposed break-up of Innogy, its assets will be divided between parent RWE and E.ON, which would take over npower, potentially raising regulatory concerns, some analysts said on Monday. SSE and npower said last year they would merge their retail gas and power operations, combining some 11.5 million customers to better challenge top-ranked British Gas.

    The British energy regulator said on Tuesday it is committed to implementing a cap on prices for millions of households by the end of this year, providing parliament passes the necessary legislation before a summer recess. * The regulator, Ofgem, will be given new powers to set and implement price limits by legislation introduced last week and expected to pass in time for the cap to be in place by winter. * Ofgem said it aimed to cap prices for 12 million households, which it says are paying as much as 300 pounds ($415) more than those on the cheapest tariffs.
