BSC Changes impacting a Generator
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting a Generator. Please note that the assessment of where impacts may affect certain roles within the electricity market may be amended during the course of the Change process.
P441 ‘Creation of Complex Site Classes’
This Modification looks to progress a recommendation of the Issue 88 Workgroup to introduce Complex Site classes. These classes would categorise the types of Complex Site, each having clearly defined criteria within the BSC. A new “type” of Complex Site (referred to as a Class 6 Complex Site) to allow approval of ”non-standard” complex sites would also be introduced.
P441 would also clarify when the netting of Imports from Exports for multiple Metering Systems registered in Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) is permitted.
This change would facilitate consistency across the market and as so called “Local Energy Schemes” become more popular, rules for when netting are permitted would be clearly defined going forward.
P426 ‘Combining related BSC Parties’ Energy Indebtedness positions for the Credit Cover Percentage calculation’
This Modification proposes to remove inefficiencies with the Credit Cover calculation by allowing related BSC Parties to combine their Energy Indebtedness prior to calculating the Credit Cover Percentage.
P440 ‘Enabling Elexon to administer the Capacity Market Advisory Group’
The BSC does not currently allow Elexon to undertake administrative activities that would support the Capacity Market Advisory Group (CMAG). This does not align to Ofgem’s decision to appoint Elexon to undertake the CMAG administrative activities on its behalf.
P438 ‘Amending the BSC to address sanction orders’
This Modification would allow Elexon to seamlessly give effect to sanctions orders.
P412 ‘Ensuring non-BM Balancing Services providers pay for non-delivery imbalances at a price that reflects the real-time value of energy’
This Modification will introduce imbalance charges for non-Balancing Mechanism (BM) Balancing Services providers, where their delivery does not match instructed volumes. This will mean the GB market more effectively meets the requirements of the Clean Energy Package.
P419 ‘Extension of P383 to include non-final Demand’
This Modification seeks to enable BSC Systems to aggregate the Import data of all non-Final Demand sites for exclusion from Balancing Services and Use of System (BSUoS) charges.
CP1550: Updates to monitoring of voltage failure alarms requirements
This Change Proposal looks to simplify the management of phase failures and update the requirements of voltage failure alarms.
P375 ‘Settlement of Secondary BM Units using metering behind the site Boundary Point’
P375 will allow Metering Equipment situated ‘behind’ the defined Boundary Point to be used for Settlement purposes in place of the Boundary Point Meter. Primarily, this will allow balancing-related services on-site from smaller assets to be separated from current imbalance-related activities, more accurately reflecting the balancing-energy volumes provided by the Balancing Service Provider (BSP).
P432 ‘Half Hourly Settlement for CT Advanced Metering Systems’
This Modification proposes to align the BSC definition of an Advanced Meter with that in the Standard License Conditions (SLC) and to set explicit Half Hourly (HH) Settlement obligations for Current Transformer (CT) Advanced Meters ahead of the migration to Market-wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS).
P421 ‘Align BSC with Grid Code for TERRE Market Suspension’
This Modification aligns the BSC with the provisions introduced into the Grid Code under GC0144 ‘Alignment of Market Suspension Rights to the EU Emergency and Restoration Code Article 35.1(b)’.
