LONDON, February 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
To coincide with the release of Centrica plc's 2013 preliminary results the company's management have undertaken a series of short video interviews.
Rick Haythornthwaite, the newly appointed Chairman, outlines the essential role that Centrica has in securing a stable energy supply. Calling for renewed dialogue with all stakeholders he says:
"I think the reputation of Britain as a place in which to invest is under threat and the time to correct that is now not after the 2015 election, by which time the possibility of the lights going out in Britain will be looming much larger. And I don't see this as the figment of a scaremonger's imagination. I think right now we've got to restart collaborative, construction dialogue around these key issues, we cannot afford to wait, hostilities have got to cease."
Sam Laidlaw, Chief Executive, highlights the key achievements made across the business in 2013. Reflecting on the failure to reach a political consensus over future investments he says: "Uncertainty is the enemy of investment, it puts basically a premium on delay which is very unfortunate."
Also interviewed are Chris Weston, Managing Director, International Downstream and Managing Director of British Gas, who discusses the marketplace and responds to those calling for a full competition review into the sector. Group FD Nick Luff updates on financial performance.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.
