Electricity, coal, oil, carbon emissions

In this week’s podcast: We look at movements in the coal industry as the US prepares to become the world’s most active market, we look at oil prices and the call from Opec’s secretary general Abdalla El-Badri for tighter regulations, we hear about the EU’s proposed target of cutting emissions by 30 per cent in part by looking to the food and drink industry and we discuss the upcoming consultations in the UK on the reform of the electricity market.

Guest in the studio this week is Bill Easton from Ernst & Young’s power and utilities team.

Presented by Sylvia Pfeifer with David Blair and Javier Blas in the studio and Fiona Harvey in Brussels.
