Energy supplier SSE says it has been in talks with the owner of rival Npower with a view to forming a new United Kingdom energy business.

In a statement to the market this afternoon, SSE said the new company would see SSE's domestic supply and services business in Great Britain combine with innogy's GB-facing household and business energy supply division.

The new supplier could be listed in London by the end of next year or early 2019, just as the government's sweeping price cap on standard energy tariffs is expected to come into effect.

SSE, formerly known as Scottish and Southern Energy, supplies energy to 7.77 million households while Npower serves 4.8 million.
