CP1539 ‘Inclusion of LCCC as an Affected party in Metering Dispensation applications’
Formal title: Inclusion of LCCC as an Affected party in Metering Dispensation applications
Under Balancing and Settlement Code Procedure (BSCP) 32 there is currently no mechanism to ensure that the Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) is informed of Metering Dispensations applications related to generation sites where there are Contracts for Difference (CfD) arrangements in place. As such the LCCC may be missing critical opportunities to have clarity in Metering Dispensation applications being considered by the BSC Panel Committees (ISG and/or SVG) on behalf of the BSC Panel so that they do not conflict with the requirements and ethos of the CfD arrangements.
The proposed solution is to include the LCCC as an Affected party for future Metering Dispensations by including them in the List of Definitions in BSCP32. It is also proposed to modify the BSCP32 section 4.1 application form to seek confirmation from the Applicant of a Metering Dispensation that they have engaged with the LCCC (where applicable).
