ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs on the British energy industry. A discussion paper was published by the Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) that looks at the potential effectiveness of various pricing structures to boost domestic energy efficiency. The energy sector investment could be scaled back if energy consumers adopt energy-efficiency measures, according to Ernst & Young. The mainland electricity transmission system in the country is expected to become more interconnected in the coming years due to new links to Ireland and the Netherlands.
