    Investors slap discount on UK utilities amid election worries

    British utility stocks are trading at a growing discount to euro zone peers as investors fear the country's deepening political crisis could trigger a general election that ushers in renationalisation of the industry, worth $76 billion (£59.9 billion). The opposition Labour Party has said it wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation policies. Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager on the global and international equities team at Schroders said those fears were "another overhang" for utilities, already subject to a discount like other UK assets because of Brexit uncertainty.

    SSE earnings drop, outlook unclear on Labour nationalisation threat

    While a British election is not due until 2022, and opinion polls show the main opposition party falling short of a governing majority, Labour laid out plans this month to offer shareholders less than current market value under a future nationalisation. SSE's chief executive said there was huge uncertainly over Labour's plans and a question mark over whether they would even achieve a majority in parliament to enact the strategy if they were to get into power. Energy regulator Ofgem was told by parliament last year to cap energy prices after lawmakers said customers were being overcharged for electricity and gas.

    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.

The report in the Daily Telegraph said Labour would pay pension funds in government bonds to take into public ownership the power transmission arms of SSE, National Grid and Scottish Power, a unit of Iberdrola SA. Labour’s intention to renationalize the nation’s power and natural gas network is a central plank of the party’s agenda under Jeremy Corbyn, who took over as leader in 2015.

    Energy firm SSE to cut jobs as competition, energy price cap bite

    Britain and Ireland's largest trade union Unite said SSE would cut 444 jobs, or around 5 percent of employees, in its retail business, blaming a lack of interest from customers for the smart meter devices that could help cut energy emissions. Britain has a goal to roll out around 50 million smart meters to almost 30 million homes by the end of 2020. "Like a number of suppliers, we are facing challenges due to competition increasing, the introduction of the energy price cap and higher operating costs," Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Retail, at SSE Energy Services Tony Keeling, said.

    Equinor first quarter beats forecast, Sverdrup field on track for November start

    Norwegian oil and gas firm Equinor reported on Friday a small fall in quarterly operating profit, beating forecasts, and said its giant Johan Sverdrup oilfield in the North Sea remains on track to start production in November. The company, which has a smaller refining business than rivals, fared slightly better than BP, Exxon Mobil, and Chevron which saw sharp declines in profits partly due to lower refining margins. Equinor's domestic and international oil and gas production units both beat forecasts, while its refining, marketing and renewable energy unit was largely in line with analysts' expectations.

    Sustained low British gas prices point to price cap reduction

    The steady decline of British wholesale gas prices shows no sign of reversing this summer, which should provide some relief to households when it is reflected in a lower price cap on energy tariffs this autumn. A cap on default electricity and gas bills - a flagship policy of British Prime Minister Theresa May to end what she called "rip-off" prices - came into force in January to set a maximum price suppliers can charge consumers on certain tariffs. Energy market regulator Ofgem said it would remove around 1 billion pounds of overcharging from consumer bills by forcing suppliers to limit the price of their default tariffs to the level of the cap, or below.

Energy regulator Ofgem was told by parliament last year to set the price limit after lawmakers said customers on the most commonly used standard tariffs were being overcharged for electricity and gas. Prime Minister Theresa May had called the tariffs a "rip-off".
