United Kingdom Power Report Q2 2015

BMI View: An unpredictable shift to a multi-party political system following the 2015 general election willcloud UK energy policy and risks undermining investment in much-needed new power capacity. Thesuccessful completion of the UK's first capacity auction creates some upside to our forecasts over the longterm, but fears of a capacity crunch will persist until this comes into effect in 2018/2019.

Political interference in the UK's power market remains one of the biggest threats to the outlook fordomestic utilities - and we expect investment decisions to be further complicated by political posturing inthe run up to the May 2015 general election. The outcome of the election remains too close to call as theUK undergoes a once-in-a-generation shift to a multi-party political system that will make coalition politicsmore common. This new era of coalition politics - and the unpredictability of the election result - makesdeciphering the UK's future energy policy and establishing a long-term investment strategy increasinglydifficult; it also risks deterring much-needed investment in new generation capacity.
