Can REMA save the energy market?
The Energy Industry is in danger of losing its licence to operate. Rightly or wrongly, it is being blamed for increases in the wholesale costs of gas and power which are largely beyond its control. Exposure to gas prices is driven by failures to rollout energy efficiency, late delivery of new nuclear and renewables and overexposure to the continent. These factors drive and exacerbate inflation which will likely be responsible for a recession as businesses and households reduce activity and spending in response to rising energy prices.
