At SSE, our job is to provide the energy people need in a reliable and sustainable way. We're involved in producing, distributing and supplying (or retailing) electricity and gas and we provide other energy-related services as well. SSE is the only company listed on the London Stock Exchange involved in such a wide range of energy businesses.
SSE's strategy is to deliver the efficient operation of, and investment in, a balanced range of economically-regulated and market-based businesses in energy production, storage, transmission, distribution, supply and related services in the energy markets in Great Britain and Ireland.
Tomorrow (Friday 15 December) we will submit bids into Ireland’s new Capacity Auction process. The auction is taking place ahead of the implementation next May of the Integrated Single Electricity Market (I-SEM) across the island of Ireland. Here, Jim Smith, Managing Director of Generation, SSE plc, writes about what the new Capacity Auction process means for consumers, for generators, and for SSE.
Following today's announcement by SSE plc of its Interim Results for the six months to 30 September 2017, we report on SSE's performance across its retail and wholesale businesses in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
