United Kingdom power and renewables market long-term outlook H1 2016

Report summary

Deteriorating economics have led to major change in the contribution of coal to UK power supply and accelerated coal plant retirements. Coal's decline prompts a substantial upturn in the market’s requirement for gas. Gas-fired power production in the first nine months of 2016 was at its highest level since 2011. The role of renewables will continue to expand, although with some significant contrasts between the growth rates of different technologies.
