BSC Changes impacting a SVA HH Meter Operator
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting a SVA Half Hourly Meter Operator. 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.
P456 ‘Enable Elexon to procure ancillary Technology Services for use by BSC Agents’
Removing barriers in BSC Section E that would prevent Elexon updating BSC Agent contracts, therefore enabling BSC Agents to use Technology Services procured by Elexon. This should reduce costs for BSC Parties.
P463 ‘Introduce a Standard Change’
To introduce a new change process – a ‘Standard Change’ process – into the BSC arrangements that would allow for certain, low risk, predictable and repeatable pre-authorised changes to be implemented without following the existing Change Proposal or Modification procedures.

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.
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.
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).
