So at last the Electricity Market Reform (EMR) White Paper has been published.

Instead of making things clear, simple and more certain, it has increased confusion and uncertainty. Investors who still remember the investors' bloodbath following the introduction of NETA when many billions of pounds were lost by the owners of UK power plants, will be even more reluctant to part with their money this time.

Malcolm Keay of Oxford Energy has written a commendably short (7 page) review of the many hundreds of pages of Government-speak. Read this and save yourself the bother of trying to understand what the Coalition is hoping to achieve.
