The National Grid issued a surprise warning on its capacity for tonight as British households were expected to increase energy consumption during the cold snap.
 
The notice of its tight electricity margin was sent out warning of a potential shortage from 7pm, when most people would be returning from work, cooking their dinner and using household appliances.
 
The National Grid quickly cancelled the automated warning as it put in place its contingency systems but experts said it was a signal of "much tighter days ahead”
 
The electricity network operator issues the warnings when "there may be less generation available" than operators expect will be needed "to meet national electricity demand".
 
UK & European markets were slightly higher as investors assessed the economic outlook and concerns over China’s tightening of Covid restrictions, which are continuing to pressure output.
 
The dollar steadied after rallying the previous day as investors flocked to the safe haven currency on worries over China’s Covid flare-ups.
 
Oil rose after top exporter Saudi Arabia said OPEC+ was sticking with output cuts and could take further steps to balance the market, outweighing global recession worries and concern about China’s rising Covid-19 case numbers.
 
Gold prices snapped a four-session slump to rise, propped up by a retreat in the dollar while investors awaited cues on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s monetary policy path.
