Report summary

The development of power generation in the UK will be shaped by the market s significant exposure to the closure of large quantities of ageing coal and oil fired capacity in the medium to long term as well as continuing growth in the contribution from renewable sources particularly wind. The market is impacted perhaps more than any other in Western Europe by EU emissions legislation influencing the operation of coal and oil fired plants.
