And in the U.K. Energy world the the focus is on the National Grid
National Grid is set to turn the screw on big energy users to curb their gas use this winter amid fears Putin's supply cuts could lead to shortages. "Could" a very most likely will.
Britain's grid operator is meeting regional gas network companies tomorrow to discuss how to get more factories and businesses to cut their consumption. On what cost to growth?
With many companies reluctant to step up voluntarily, the grid managers will examine new incentives to encourage reduced gas use.
Getting large industrial users to agree to cut gas use could be key in avoiding shortages this winter. Plans have already been rolled out to keep coal plants online if gas flows are cut further. Green goes back to black!
There are also similar plans being prepared to reduce electricity use if needed.
