(Reuters) - Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) on Wednesday cleared a proposed deal between British energy providers SSE and Innogy SE's <IGY.DE> Npower to merge their retail units.

CMA said it decided to clear the merger after finding that SSE and Npower are not close rivals for customers on standard variable tariff prices.
