ELEXON Responses to Industry Consultations

We monitor and respond to consultations that may have an impact on the provisions in the BSC, on ELEXON, or – through ELEXON – on our customers. We respond to consultations if we think that an area of the BSC may be affected or where clarification of the BSC provisions is of benefit to the consultation. Some of these consultations also elicit a response from the BSC Panel.

See the Consultations page for consultations issued by ELEXON for industry response.

If you are aware of consultations which you feel warrant a response from us, please email communications@elexon.co.uk
