Centrica Plc’s power and gas supply chief quit a year into the job in the latest of a spate of management departures at the company as U.K. lawmakers wage a public campaign against rising consumer energy bills.
Centrica Plc ’s Direct Energy unit may spend as much as 2 billion pounds ($3 billion) to acquire power and natural-gas assets in North America by 2015, Chief Executive Officer Chris Weston said.
Centrica Plc , the U.K.’s biggest energy supplier, plans to buy power generation and retail assets in the U.S. to double profits from North America by 2014.
"There is certainly a bias to be risk averse."
