Electricity regulation in the UK: overviewby Munir Hassan and Dalia Majumder-Russell, CMSRelated ContentA Q&A guide to Electricity regulation in the Q&A gives a high level overview of the domestic electricity market, including domestic electricity companies, electricity generation and renewable energy, transmission, distribution, supply and tax issues.

The energy market explained Supplying energy to homes across the UK involves three key elements: making electricity through generation transporting gas and electricity and selling it to the customer. Energy companies can work in any of these different areas, and some operate in all of three of them The electricity and gas markets in the UK are.

The electricity industry needed cheaper and more reliable energy supplies, and new methods to achieve this.

Lord Weir chaired a committee that proposed the development of the Central Electricity Board (CEB), which would connect the most efficient power stations in Britain.

A key event for electricity markets occurred in when the United Kingdom government under Margaret Thatcher privatised the UK electricity supply industry.

The process followed by the British was then used as a model (or at least a catalyst) for the restructuring of several other Commonwealth countries, notably the National Electricity.

The book covers the basic modelling of electricity markets, including the impact of uncertainty (an integral part of generation investment decisions and transmission cost-benefit analysis).

The roots of the modern electricity generating industry can be found in the middle years of the nineteenth century (in the work of Benjamin Franklin, Alessandro Volta and Michael Faraday).Michael Faraday was able to show the relationship between electricity and magnetism, which makes it possible to generate electricity with moving machinery.

The framework for the regulation of the UK electricity industry is laid down principally by sector-specific legislation – the Electricity Act (as amended) in Great Britain and the Electricity (Northern Ireland) Order (as amended) in Northern Ireland – and the licences issued under it.
