    Britain's Co-op to buy Flow Energy as energy price cap looms

    Britain's Co-operative Energy will buy fellow energy supplier Flow Energy, the two companies said on Tuesday, with the smaller firm warning it would have struggled under the government’s looming price cap. Flow Energy, the main business of Flowgroup (FLOWF.L), which is listed on London Stock Exchange's AIM junior market, will be sold for 9.25 million pounds ($13.10 million), FlowGroup said. Flow Energy has around 130,000 customers and is one of the more than 50 suppliers challenging Britain's big six energy providers - Centrica's (CNA.L) British Gas, SSE (SSE.L), E.ON (EONGn.DE), EDF Energy (EDF.PA), Innogy's (IGY.DE) Npower and Iberdrola's (IBE.MC) Scottish Power.

    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.

    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.

    Key RWE shareholder opposed to complete sale of Innogy stake

    RWE (RWEG.DE) should keep a majority in network and renewables unit Innogy (IGY.DE), its biggest shareholder said on Wednesday, as the German utility considers options for its 76.8 percent stake. RWE has said it is considering all options with respect to Innogy, Germany's biggest energy group with a market cap of 19.1 billion euros (17.08 billion pounds), which RWE carved out and listed in 2016. Sources have said that the group has talked to France's Engie (ENGIE.PA) and Italy's Enel (ENEI.MI) about a possible asset swap deal in which RWE would trade its majority in Innogy for a minority in a new cross-national entity.
