EDF have announced that Dungeness B nuclear reactor has extended the expected working life by 10 years to 2028

Gas: Arbitration between Russian and Ukrainian suppliers has been delayed until 2016, fuelling speculation about gas supply capabilities over the winter of 2015/16 as the interim agreement ends next month.

European Gas demand dropped by 13% last year, while the fact it was the warmest year since records began in the late 1800’s certainly played a part, increased energy efficiency and  the economic climate also helped reduce demand and put pressure on prices.
