The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Office of Enforcement has been aggressive, especially against alleged market manipulation by banks and those in the energy and gas markets, and has opened 17 new investigations in 2014. More than half of those were surveillance division observations or from power grid operator market monitors. The biggest recent lawsuit against Barclays Bank Plc, was based upon allegations of power market manipulation. Barclays denies any wrong-doing.
