BSC Changes impacting the National Electricity Transmission System Operator
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting the National Electricity Transmission System Operator (NETSO). 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.
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).
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.
P437 ‘Allowing non-BSC Parties to request Metering Dispensations’
This Modification proposes to introduce a provision in Section L ‘Metering’ to allow the relevant Meter Operator Agent to apply for Metering Dispensations on behalf of a non-BSC Party.
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.
P416 Introducing a route of appeal for the Annual Budget in line with the proposals for the Retail Energy Code
P416 seeks to amend the BSC to include an appeals mechanism that BSC Parties could use to challenge items in the Annual Budget.
