Crippling energy costs have forced manufacturers to warn of knock-on higher costs for goods.
The company’s electricity system operator (ESO) said Britain’s infrastructure will be able to get enough gas to see it through the winter period, but cut its forecast of buffer supply.
LONDON (Reuters) -Britain faces tight electricity supplies this winter on rising demand and capacity constraints, National Grid said in a report on Thursday, though a top official said he was confident it will keep the lights on. The annual winter outlook report comes amid record high energy prices in Britain which contributed to nine energy suppliers going bust last month, caused some industrial firms to curtail production and warnings over some food shortages this winter. European wholesale gas and power prices have rocketed this year due to lower-than-usual gas stocks this summer, reduced supply from Russia, the onset of colder temperatures and infrastructure outages.
