Spending Review 2013: Energy market will be on high alert tomorrow, says KPMG 


Commenting on the energy measures set out by the Chancellor in today’s Spending Review, Darryl Murphy, infrastructure energy partner at KPMG, said:


“The energy market will be on high alert tomorrow to see what detail will be revealed by the government in relation to the strike prices for the Contract for Differences.  How the detailed announcements are received will vary enormously across the different stakeholders.  A lower strike price than expected is bound to trigger a negative response from the private sector developers and investors that the government is seeking to attract. The tricky balance the government needs to achieve is getting the private sector to invest and build new low carbon energy generation but do so in a way that’s palatable to the consumer.”
