Tell me all you know about electricity markets.

I am looking to learn as much as possible about electricity markets (specifically the UK/Europe) for an interview that I have coming up. I understand the technical aspects of the job that I am going for but I am a bit unsure about some of the Political Economic Social Technological (PEST) factors that are having an effect on the industry at the moment and I would like to have greater insight. There seems to be a whole raft of information about the long-term energy supply issues that the world will face in the next 30-50 years but there is not so much on how that will impact on the next 6 months to 5 years.
What is the strategy for utilties at the moment? Are there any regulations on the horizon that will impact on these companies? Is there anything else that I should consider?
