Progression

CP1527 was raised by Elexon on behalf of the Issue 80 Workgroup. CP1527 was published for industry consultation over the period 10 February 2020 to 6 March 2020.

Following SVG and ISG on 7 April 2020 the panels deferred their decision on the proposed changed to BSCP601, CoP1, CoP2, CoP3, CoP5 and CoP10  subject to Elexon carrying out a Cost Benefit Analysis  on the number of days for data storage requirements,  presenting options other than 250 days  and considering the impact of Covid-19 on the implementation date.

Elexon presented the second version of the Assessment Report to ISG and SVG at their meetings on 7 July 2020.  The solution presented changed the recommended minimum data storage capacity for Settlement Outstations to 90 days per Outstation channel, at 30 minutes integration periods, for CoPs 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 with supportive analysis to justify the change.  Both committees unanimously agreed to approve the CP.
