Trade continues to differ from recent norms. Gas exports to Europe remain high as the UK continues to support European markets as they move away from Russian gas. Electricity imports into the UK reached a record high due to pricing differentials, a contrast to last year when the UK was exporting record levels of electricity to help make good European shortfalls. Net import dependency was 43.6 per cent for the quarter up 5.0 percentage points on last year
