The article reports on the indifference of the energy industry to the plan of SSE PLC to trade all its power generation output on the open market in an attempt to transform wholesale market liquidity. Competitors of SSE and independent suppliers disagree with the suggestion that they need to buy or sell large volumes of power. SSE warned about the unlikelihood of the Competition Commission to reach a conclusion regarding the problem of customer trust.
