Energy news updates
Prospect has blamed shortsighted government policy for the decision by employee-owned Hatfield Colliery, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire to stop producing coal with immediate effect.
Responding to E.ON's plan to close its gas-fired power station at Killingholme, North Lincolnshire, Prospect has called on the company to do everything possible to support the remaining 22 employees on site.
Prospect, the union for energy professionals, welcomed the news that members at the Killingholme and Brigg power stations have been awarded another 10 months’ work after securing a contract which will delay the planned closure of both plants.
More detail is needed about how nuclear decommissioning company Magnox Ltd plans to cut up to 1,600 jobs in the UK, said Prospect, the largest union for nuclear industry employees.
Helping to slash household energy bills is just one of the ways in which the union will be able to put cash back into members' pockets when the Prospect Extra service launches in July, offering market-beating deals on common financial and household services as well as independent expert advice.
