ELEXON responses to Industry consultations
ELEXON monitors and responds to industry-wide consultations that may have an impact on the provisions in the BSC, on ELEXON, or – through ELEXON – on our customers.
Some consultations also require a response from the BSC Panel.
Please let us know if you there are any industry based consultations which you feel warrant a response from us.
