ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs on public utilities in Great Britain. A 2009 pollution inventory from the Environment Agency showed differences in the emissions from coal-fired power stations compared with the amount of power they generate. Scottish Water has been commended by industry regulator Wics for its performance since its establishment in 2002.
