AES May Challenge U.K. Over Aid to Energy Co.

LCG, April 8, 2003AES Corporation, owner of the Drax power station, may challenge the British governments decision to give 2.1 billion pounds in aid to British Energy.

AES finds the financial assistance is unfair because, AES believes, the energy market will be negatively affected and electricity prices will not rise with the market.

Late last year the European Commission approved up to 889 million pounds in aid to British Energy in order to guarantee electricity supply and nuclear safety.

TXU Europe, the large Drax plants major customer, collapsed recently. Its demise forced AES to reconsider its financial situation regarding Drax. AES may participate in a debt-for-equity trade with Drax creditors for greater than 1 billion pounds.

AES is likely to decide whether or not to go ahead with the challenge this week. If the company takes the issue to court, it is likely to file with the European Court of First Instance.
