To say it's even a storm in a teacup would be an overstatement. Meanwhile.... Http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/2558219 "Study Determines That Disused Mines Could Be Used as Heat Source for UK, Wandsworth, London -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/19/2015 -- Leading UK supplier of fireplaces and stoves, Stonewoods LTD, have recently commented on a study at Alkane Energy's control centre situated at the abandoned Markham Colliery in Derbyshire which suggest that disused mines could potentially work as an additional source of heat for the UK. The study reveals that disused mines could help provide renewable energy for tens of thousands of residents within the UK, thanks to the ground source heat pump (GSHP) which can extract heat from lukewarm water within these mines. The way the pilot project works is by pumping water from a mineshaft to the surface, and a heat exchanger then extracts any thermal energy. The pump helps produce a higher temperature than the water available in the mine, thanks to the ability to condense energy and circulate it through a separate heating system. This method has managed to heat an industrial building owned by Alkane Energy, to show just how effective this method is. The renewable aspect comes from returning the groundwater back into the mine, so it can be heated once more. The researchers have determined that mines within the area could potentially heat approximately 45,000 homes, with the GSHP able to provide 433% more energy than a standard boiler. Plans are also in the works to have the GSHP powered by wind or solar power, which would make for a 100% completely renewable method. Author of the study, Amin Al-Habaibeh, said, 'In a way we may never have previously envisaged, coalmines could once again be used to provide warmth to thousands of homes across the UK. Often commenting on industry news, a spokesperson for Stonewoods LTD said, 'This discovery could be of huge benefit to the UK, and it will allow more people to stay warmer when winter arrives, if they implement it that is. Tests for renewable sources are always undergoing, and it will help make for a warmer, more reliable future as fossil fuels die out. We hope this study will come to fruition in the near future."

ALK the only one prepared to talk to the Times saying ALK was above board with all its bids.

Times saying it only applies to one of the ten contracts given. So doesnt sound like a wholesale enquiry.Bit odd really.

I am not sure there was any smoke, let alone fire. I think ofgem could reasonably claim any inconvenience and stress was self-inflicted.

Seems to be a big drop for what appears to be smoke without any fire! Perhaps ofgem will compensate shareholders for the inconvenience and stress!

Only one of the seven generators under investigation had planning permission issues. All the other 6 were existing generators. Not exactly sure what the problem is if its anything but minor.

Roddyb Ofgem has NOT accused anyone of providing misleading info. The RNS ends with: "The opening of these investigations does not imply that we have made any findings about non-compliance." Frankly I would be surprised if planning consent status was not checked if these companies are being paid up front for capacity that could not exist. The market reaction was unnecessary. It may even be good news if ALK is cleared but other companies are found to have cheated. I have topped up.

Alt OFGEM could have done their investigation and published the names of the "guilty" companies, if any, when they had finished.

It's a shame OFGEM haven't anything better to do. Total waste of time & public money. If the Government are looking for somewhere to make cuts they should start with this set of jobsworths.

How long will the allegations take to bottom? This could hang over the Company for some considerable time.

That's right 10% drop in SP this morning because Ofgem accuses ALK (with 4 others) of providing misleading info concerning planning consents in their auction of future generating capacity contracts. UK is throttling companies with red tape - classic example, we are making electricity from waste gas and now there are issues over whether the planning conditions can be complied with. ALK along with SXX must be asking themselves why they do business in the UK when one part of the State applauds them and the other half impedes them.

Rivaldo, yes it would appear that the seller has gone, now we should hopefully move up to a more reasonable SP, on a forward SP of 15 we should be on around 50p a low forward price given the future possibilities!

Good to see a 25k buy causing a 0.5p tick up. Not much stock around perhaps.

Climbing nicely again, with sells achieving premiums and buyers paying the full 25.5p offer price now. The latest consensus forecast for this year is 3.26p EPS, with a 0.35p dividend. EDR's share price is also climbing and at recent highs.

Going well again today - should never have dropped as far as it did. And hopefully considerable upside from here.
