    German energy group Innogy, which is being broken up by parent RWE and rival E.ON, on Tuesday said operating profit fell more than a fifth in the first quarter as it continued to lose customers in Britain. "In the company's UK retail business ... the persistently poor market environment resulted in a decline in customer numbers," Innogy said on Tuesday, keeping its 2019 outlook. In Britain, Innogy lost 103,000 customers in the first three months.

    Gloom Deepens on Britain’s Utility Industry as Profit Evaporates

    Innogy SE on Tuesday posted a loss for its U.K. unit in the first quarter following an earlier write down of more than 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion). The market value of Centrica Plc, which is Britain’s biggest supplier of energy to homes, has slumped by more than a quarter this year, and the utility warned of challenging times ahead. The largest utilities also have lawmakers on their back, and they regularly cite Prime Minister Theresa May’s price cap on tariffs as a reason for deteriorating conditions.

    FTSE 100 falls as trade dispute escalates, investors disconnect from Vodafone

    The FTSE 100 ended down 0.6% while the FTSE 250 tumbled 1.2% on Monday, led by a slump in Metro Bank. The breakdown last week has not proved temporary and it seems China is prepared to go toe-to-toe with the U.S. on this," analyst Neil Wilson said. Vodafone tumbled 5.2% on its worst day in nearly five years after The Times reported that the world's second-biggest mobile operator was set to slash dividends to pay for auctions for mobile phone airwaves in Germany and Italy.

    British retail energy woes weigh on E.ON, Centrica

    FRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - E.ON and Centrica, two of Britain's so-called "big six" energy providers, warned on Monday of a toughening retail market, raising the chance of cost cuts in response to falling profits. Britain's major energy utilities have faced competition from small, more flexible rivals entering the fray while the government has put a cap on electricity prices, causing several companies to cut their earnings outlooks. "We will have to talk to the regulator," E.ON finance chief Marc Spieker told journalists on Monday after reporting first-quarter results and flagging cost cuts at its British unit, where profits fell by 60 percent.

    Centrica’s £2.4m CEO pay suggests it hasn’t checked the weather

    British Gas owner Centrica, for all its smart meters and connected home hubs, cannot predict the February weather. It has now conducted 24 annual votes on bosses’ bonuses since Cedric Brown’s 75 per cent pay rise — to £475,000 a year — inspired protesters to name a pig after him, and bring it to the 1995 shareholder meeting, where it eschewed the in-house catering in favour of a trough of treacle-covered £5 notes. Perhaps the board was emboldened by the demise of the porcine Cedric in a bread-eating accident some years ago.

    Centrica chief defends pay after ‘challenging’ 2019 start

    The boss of Centrica said he spent every pound he had received in bonuses on buying shares in the company, as he was forced to defend his pay after a warning about the impact of a new cap on household energy bills. Iain Conn and the rest of Centrica’s board came under fire at its annual meeting in London over the group’s performance and executive remuneration. One retail shareholder calculated that Mr Conn’s bonus equated to almost £1 for every customer the owner of British Gas lost in the UK last year.

    Sustained low British gas prices point to price cap reduction

    The steady decline of British wholesale gas prices shows no sign of reversing this summer, which should provide some relief to households when it is reflected in a lower price cap on energy tariffs this autumn. A cap on default electricity and gas bills - a flagship policy of British Prime Minister Theresa May to end what she called "rip-off" prices - came into force in January to set a maximum price suppliers can charge consumers on certain tariffs. Energy market regulator Ofgem said it would remove around 1 billion pounds of overcharging from consumer bills by forcing suppliers to limit the price of their default tariffs to the level of the cap, or below.

    More British energy customers switch supplier in first-quarter despite price cap

    The number of British customers switching energy supplier in the first quarter of 2019 rose by 12 percent compared with the same period last year, data from industry group Energy UK showed, despite a government price cap which began in January. Energy regulator Ofgem was told by parliament last year to set the price limit after lawmakers said customers on the most commonly used standard tariffs were being overcharged for electricity and gas. Prime Minister Theresa May had called the tariffs a "rip-off".

    All aboard! Treasure on the high seas for gas dealers

    In the booming market for supercooled natural gas, the most precious commodity is the ship. A global quest for cleaner energy has fired up demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG), which produces less carbon dioxide than coal. Reflecting the white-hot demand for ships, over a dozen different companies, including energy majors BP and ExxonMobil, trading house Trafigura and gas utility Centrica are already looking to charter boats for the winter, according to four shipping industry sources, months earlier than usual.
