Europe's biggest power utility Enel has taken a stand against the energy-hungry industry of mining cryptocurrencies, saying it has "no interest whatsoever in selling power" for the purpose. Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that Enel was in talks to sell power from renewable energy plants to the Swiss cryptocurrency company Envion AG. Utilities worldwide have seen rising demand from miners of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, which need large quantities of energy to power computers to solve complex maths puzzles to validate transactions and earn more of the currency as a reward.

European shares slipped after two days of gains on Wednesday, led by the DAX (.GDAXI), which was hit by a bounce in the euro as well as deadlock in attempts to form a new German government. The pan-European STOXX 600 benchmark (.STOXX) closed 0.3 percent lower, with the DAX falling 1.2 percent following strong gains in the previous session. The UK budget, which had been a key focus of the day, failed to impress and had a limited impact on the broader market, though remarks from chancellor Philip Hammond highlighting Britain's economic weakness briefly weighed on the pound, supporting the export-oriented FTSE index (.FTXE).

RWE is looking at ways to cut its 16.8-billion euro (£14.9 billion) stake in retail business Innogy (IGY.DE) and one option involves a deal with Italy's Enel (ENEI.MI), Reuters reported at the weekend. Despite having no immediate need for cash, RWE has recently held talks with Enel, Europe's largest utility by market value, according to a person familiar with the matter. RWE shares were up 3.1 percent on Germany's DAX market (.GDAXI) , which was off 0.34 percent at 0945 GMT.
MADRID/FRANKFURT/MILAN (Reuters) - German utility RWE (RWEG.DE) is looking at ways to cut its 16.8-billion euro (15.00 billion pounds) stake in retail business Innogy (IGY.DE), several banking sources told Reuters, adding this could involve a deal with Italy's Enel (ENEI.MI). RWE said last week there was no need to sell the 76.8 percent stake, given the steady dividend it gets from Innogy's networks, renewables and retail businesses that were carved out last year. RWE is being advised by Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAC.N) on its strategic options, while Enel's advisers include JP Morgan (JPM.N), the people said.

The company, which is targeting core earnings this year of 15.5 billion euros, said it expected EBITDA growth to accelerate further in the final quarter.
Stricter European Union pollutant limits could lead to costly upgrades or the closure of one third of Europe's large-scale coal power plant capacity, a report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) showed on Monday. On April 28, EU member states approved stricter limits on pollutants such as sulphur oxides (SOx) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from large combustion plants in Europe which can cause air pollution and respiratory diseases. To comply with the new rules by 2021, utilities will either have to invest in new technology to retrofit coal plants, restrict operating hours to under 1,500 a year or close the facilities, the IEEFA said.
