    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.

    U.K.’s National Grid Creates More Jobs in America Than at Home

    National Grid Plc, the U.K. gas and power network operator borne from Margaret Thatcher’s privatization drive in the 1980s, offers the same services in the densely populated area spanning New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The U.S. now accounts for most of the London-based utility’s revenue and it gets the biggest share of investment. National Grid’s shifting center will come as cold comfort to a company that now has to deal with the threat of nationalization should Britain’s opposition Labour Party win the next U.K. general election.

It has put the high-voltage lines at the heart of its growth strategy and is continuing with projects that are already underway, amounting to a 2 billion-pound ($2.6 billion) investment in cables to France, Norway and Denmark.National Grid said it expected energy regulator Ofgem to publish on May 23 its latest consultation on proposed gas and power grid price-control levels for 2021.

    Labour plans to take National Grid into public ownership

    In a radical plan, the Labour leader says low-income households would benefit from the changes, which could see millions lifted out of fuel poverty. Labour says the scheme could provide free energy and save an average of £117 a year on household bills. Any unused electricity generated by the programme would be used by the National Grid, which it is claimed would raise an additional £66m a year for local authorities.

    National Grid says nationalisation would delay green energy progress

    National Grid has said plans by Labour to renationalise UK energy networks would damage investment and delay progress towards greener energy. According to the Financial Times, a paper to be set out later this week will explain how a Jeremy Corbyn government would nationalise the networks - cables and pipelines that deliver gas and electricity - soon after winning an election. National Grid said in a statement that it was one of the most reliable networks in the world and also "at the heart of the decarbonisation agenda".

    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.
