ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the Great Britain Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) not to pursue an investigation into the trading behaviour of two Scottish utilities, Scottish Power and Scottish and Southern Energy, in the wholesale market. According to the regulator, it would be hard to prove infringement and it would instead use alternative options to address its concerns.
