United Kingdom energy markets long-term outlook H1 2015

United Kingdom energy markets long-term outlook H1 2015

Report summary

In 2014, total energy demand dropped as a result of mild weather and a fall in Residential/Commercial/Agricultural (RCA) demand. Demand is expected to recover in 2015/2016, assuming a return to normal temperatures. However, in the longer term a downward trend is expected to prevail as the UK's economic structure continues to fundamentally shift, away from heavy industry to services which has been accompanied by a fall in energy intensity.

Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best.
