The UK’s biggest power plant, Drax, has started capturing carbon dioxide from its flue gas — the first time carbon has been captured from a wood-burning power plant anywhere in the world. - FT

Schroders seem to be offloading bit by bit it seems 12th Dec'18:-”Schroders reduces stake to 12.94%(13.255%)̶1; 17th Dec'18:-”Schroders reduces stake to 12.118%(12.94%)̶1; 18th Dec'18:-”Schroders reduces stake to 11.879%(12.118%)R21; So presumably this has accounted for the weakness? Sentiment around Utilities pretty lacklustre as well

Castleford It is a situation that should be looked at with regard to protecting supply of energy during situations of demand. It is expected to be overruled, but before you join in the witch hunt against the Europeans it was actually a UK competitor that raised the complaint!

hTTps://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/nov/15/uk-backup-power-subsidies-illegal-european-court-capacity-market "The UK’s scheme for ensuring power supplies during the winter months has been suspended after a ruling by the European court of justice that it constitutes illegal state aid. Payments to energy firms under the £1bn capacity market scheme will be halted until the government can win permission from the European commission to restart it. The scheme subsidises owners of coal, gas and other power stations so the plants are ready to ensure that electricity for businesses and homes is available at peak times in winter. The UK has also been blocked from holding any capacity market auctions for energy firms to bid for new contracts to supply backup power in the future. National Grid said ministers had instructed it to indefinitely postpone auctions that had been planned for early 2019."

"The acquisition positions Drax as a key player to fill in the gaps in the UK energy system at times when solar and wind power output is low. It also means that if the company fails to secure the subsidies needed for the new gas power station it wants to build at its North Yorkshire site then it will still have a broad portfolio. The chief executive of Drax Group, Will Gardiner, said: “As the system transitions towards renewable technologies, the demand for flexible, secure energy sources is set to grow. We believe there is a compelling logic in our move.” hTTps://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/oct/16/scottish-power-wind-drax-sale-uk-energy-firms

Excellent news. Really pleased that they managed to acquire these assets. OK, not quite there, but I don't see any reason for shareholders' objections or issues from the CMA.

"The Acquisition represents an attractive opportunity to create significant value for shareholders and is expected to deliver returns significantly in excess of the Group's WACC and to be highly accretive to underlying earnings in 2019." Delightful.

This was BoA Merrill Lynch a few week's back: BoA Merrill Lynch upgraded Drax to “buy” with a 425p target price, largely on the prospect of cheaper biomass feedstock supporting earnings.

But wait, maybe they swallowed the info and like it. I did a bit of researh last night and I would, as an investor, like the pumped storage assets in the Drax portfolio. I've actually visited the site in Scotland. Impressive. At one point it was going to be expanded but I think they were looking for government support which didn't materialise. Perhaps they should have changed their name to Scottish Power Housing! That would have got the numpty Tories interested. LOL

Market was getting used to share buybacks, increased dividends and a business plan that was clear and made sense. Now there is lots of mud in the water which may or may not be enhancing and may also be a cover for a plan that perhaps wasn't robust in the first place; hence the reaction.
