Key Highlights

  • The power generation industry volume is defined as the total electrical energy (TWh) generated within a country over the course of each calendar year.
  • The UK power generation industry had total revenues of $32.8bn in 2017, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -7.3% between 2013 and 2017.
  • Industry production volumes declined with a CARC of -2.8% between 2013 and 2017, to reach a total of 318.1 TWh in 2017.
  • Blame can be placed upon stagnant consumption caused by high prices and a need to invest in more efficient technology to meet government targets. Expensive projects such as Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant and a lack of effective competition in the utilities market has exerted upward pressure on prices for end-users resulting in reduced consumption. In April 2018 the price of wholesale electricity stood at an average of $63 per MWh in the UK according to OMIE. Meanwhile in France and Spain the prices stood at $41 per MWh and $35 per MWh respectively in the same time period, highlighting how much more UK consumers have to pay for power.
