Outlook With E.On raising its gas and electricity prices yesterday, five of the big six energy providers have now announced bill increases in recent weeks (the exception being EDF Energy, for which a rise is no doubt only a matter of time once its price freeze promise expires). It's a brave move by the energy industry, which is the subject of an ongoing investigation by Ofgem, the sector's regulator, into pricing.

E.ON has sold its 3.5 per cent stake in the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom for €3.4bn (£2.8bn). The German energy giant, which is raising money to expand outside Europe, sold 2.7 per cent to the Russian state bank VEB and 0.8 per cent on the stock market. As its earnings in Europe drop due to a tax on its nuclear power plants in Germany and demand falls due to the economic crisis, E.ON is seeking to lower its €45bn debt burden and raise money to expand outside the continent.
