BSC Changes impacting a HH Data Collector
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting a Half Hourly Data Collector. 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.
P425 ‘Single Supplier Shared SVA Meter Arrangements’
This Modification aims to reduce the requirement from two or more Suppliers, to one or more Suppliers, to be involved in a Shared Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) Metering Arrangement.
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.
CP1559 ‘Complex Sites Process Improvements’
This Change Proposal will deliver improvements to the Complex Sites process.
P427: Publication of Performance Assurance Parties’ impact on Settlement Risk
This Modification seeks to amend BSC Section Z to allow the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) to recommend that the Panel publish notices to industry in respect of Performance Assurance Parties’ (PAPs’) contribution to Settlement Risk along with relevant risk data.
CP1565 ‘Updates to address Central Management System issues’
This CP seeks to update BSCP520 to contain clearly outlined processes for approval and fault reporting of Central Management Systems.
P436 ‘Consequential BSC changes for Switching SCR (REC 3.0)’
Ofgem’s Switching Significant Code Review (SCR) will introduce the new Central Switching Service (CSS) and version 3.0 of the Retail Energy Code (REC 3.0). P436 progresses the consequential BSC changes needed to align with REC 3.0.
P442 ‘Reporting chargeable volumes for exempt and licensed supply’
This Modification seeks to allow correct reporting of chargeable volumes to the EMRS company for SVA Metering Systems that record both exempt supply and licensed supply through the addition of a new third party role, the “Exempt Supply Calculation Agent”.
CP1532 ‘Reduce Half Hourly Change of Supplier timelines to meet the Initial Settlement Run’
CP1562 ‘Amendments to the approved IDD changes for P375’
CP1562 seeks to update the New Electricity Trading Arrangement (NETA) Interface Definition Documents(IDD) Part 1 and 2 that were approved under P375, to provide clarity to the relevant Parties that make use of the document.
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).
