    British Gas loses 110,000 customer accounts

    British Gas lost 110,000 customer accounts over the first four months of the year but remained on track for its full-year targets as the cold weather saw customers turn up their heating. Centrica (Frankfurt: A0DK6K - news) , which owns the energy firm, said the exodus - amid intense competition - had slowed compared to levels seen last year. It was not the only one of the Big Six energy firms to see large numbers of customers leave, with npower on Monday reporting a fall of about 120,000 customer accounts in the first quarter of 2018.

    Innogy CEO says losing staff due to split-up fears

    FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF (Reuters) - Innogy (IGY.DE) CEO Uwe Tigges acknowledged on Monday that staff are leaving ahead of a merger that will see parent RWE (RWEG.DE) and rival E.ON (EONGn.DE) split up the German energy company. "Yes, it is something we are observing," Tigges said, not giving any numbers but underscoring the importance of assuring senior staff and younger talent about their future prospects. The deal to split up of Innogy's renewables, networks and retail operations has sparked fears among management and workers, who fear they might have to bear the brunt of up to 5,000 job cuts E.ON is planning as part of the asset swap.

    Npower hikes energy bills for one million customers by 5.3%

    Big Six energy supplier npower is to increase standard variable energy tariffs by 5.3% in a hike affecting around a million customers. The company, owned by Germany's Innogy, blamed rising wholesale energy prices and the costs of implementing Government policy as it announced the hike, which will come into effect on 17 June. It follows a series of hikes announced by Big Six rivals British Gas, EDF (Paris: FR0010242511 - news) and Scottish Power and the scrapping of a customer discount by E.On that will also effectively mean higher bills.

    UK regulator probes SSE, Npower merger due to price concerns

    British regulators have launched an in-depth investigation into the tie-up between the retail power unit of SSE Plc and Npower, owned by Germany's Innogy, saying it may reduce competition and increase prices for some households. The merger would create Britain's second-largest retail power provider and reduce the "Big Six" dominating the market to five companies when they are already facing political scrutiny for their tariffs and pressure from smaller rivals. It also comes as German energy giants RWE and E.ON plan to carve up Innogy.

    Full competition investigation for 'big six' energy tie-up

    Plans for a merger between "big six" energy suppliers SSE (LSE: SSE.L - news) and npower face an in-depth investigation by regulators on fears that the deal could mean higher bills for households. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) found after an initial inquiry that the tie-up could reduce competition - potentially leading to higher prices. On Tuesday it said SSE and npower "did not offer measures to address the CMA's concerns" so it has referred the merger for a "phase 2" probe, with a deadline for the final report on 22 October.

    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.
