The article presents a discussion on deregulation of the Great Britain power market. Deregulation of the Great Britain power market has been a bumpy journey but the 15 years since privatisation make it one of the most mature in the world. The conundrum facing the Great Britain market is that of persuading the private sector that there is a firm policy in place and that there is political commitment to incentivising investment in the sector. Any hint of policy uncertainty and the consequence will be deferral of the necessary investment.
