The article presents the findings of various studies related to public utilities in Great Britain as of May 2006.

The assessment conducted by Ernst & Young showed that reliability and security of supply have not deteriorated. The British Office of Gas & Electricity Markets suggests that the overall gain for the industry would be worth £20-59 million.
