The UK’s Confederation of Business and Industry(CBI) have made comments supporting the Electricity Market Reform(EMR) which can seen seen in this article on the Businessgreen web site.
There are an increasing number of stories coming out in the UK press about possible supply issues, and the problem of getting companies to invest in the UK energy infrastructure, which EMR is partly targeted at resolving.
The CBI is suggesting that there is not enough of a focus on efficiency of use, and they would like to see increased incentives for the infrastructure to be pushed in this direction. It is also worth emphasising demand management when considering this.
The EMR continues to roll out, with many capacity market announcements taking place over the last weeks.
