Subscribe to UK Steel publications feed


UK Steel has conducted its own research examining the prices paid by steel producers based in the UK, Germany and France. This is the third year in which we’ve conducted similar research, and the third year in which the disparity between UK electricity prices and those in competing countries has increased.

In this report we highlight some immediate steps that the Government can implement to enable the steel sector to compete on a level playing field internationally and protect well paid, highly skilled British jobs.
