United Kingdom Power Report Q4 2017

United Kingdom Power Report Q4 2017

BMI View: The major shift from coal- to gas-fired power generation that occurred in 2016 marked an inflection point in UK electricity generation - and we forecast gas will be the dominant fuel in UK power generation through to the end of our forecast period. We have seen an uptick in corporate activity in the gas power sector over the last quarter, with some companies focusing on small-scale peaking capacity and others banking on the long-term importance of large-scale gas capacity.

Latest Updates & Structural Trends

Our view that relatively favourable gas power economics will help to accelerate a switch from coal to gas power generation in the UK is firmly in play - with the significant fuel switching that occurred in 2016 unlikely to be reversed amid plans to close all unabated coal capacity by 2025.
