CP1560 ‘Demand Control Event Process Clarifications’
Formal title: Demand Control Event Settlement Adjustment Process Clarifications
This CP seeks to clarify the processes that take place after a Demand Control Event by amending the relevant Code Subsidiary Documents to ensure clarity and consistency.
The Settlement Adjustment Processes (SAPs) that were performed immediately after the Demand Control Event (DCE) that occurred in August 2019 (DCE00201) were hindered by a lack of clarity and consistency in the relevant Balancing and Settlement Code Procedures (BSCPs). This CP delivers against some of the recommendations of Issue 89 ‘Ensuring Demand Control Event procedures remain fit for purpose’, which was raised as a ‘lessons learned’ exercise after the DCE.
