P443 ‘To Cap NGESO Interconnector Trades’

At the current time National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO) can trade at prices above the Value of Lost Load (VoLL – defined in the BSC Section T 1.12).  This adds to customers’ costs and sends a signal to the markets that customers are willing to buy power at any price.  In a cost of living crisis the Proposer does not believe that the British public are prepared to buy energy at any price.

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.

P440 ‘Enabling Elexon to administer the Capacity Market Advisory Group’

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.

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).
