P376 Assessment Procedure Consultation

Summary

P376 ‘Utilising a Baselining Methodology to set Physical Notifications’ proposes to allow the Final Physical Notification which feeds into the Settlement of Trading Charges to be created via a Baselining Methodology. The new Physical Notification will be de-coupled from the Physical Notification used by National Electricity Transmission System Operator (NETSO) for dispatch. This change will allow Balancing Service Providers to be fully recompensed for their actual change from normal usage and the impact this change has on the system, thus enabling greater participation.

P417 Report Phase Consultation

Summary

A Modification is required to remove the templates in annexes M1 – M4 in Section M ‘Credit Cover and Credit Default’ and replace them with a requirement for the BSC Panel approved templates and Approved Insurance Product requirements to be published on the BSC Website. Subsequently, the Letter of Credit templates previously approved by the Panel in their meeting on April 2020 shall become the only Letter of Credit templates to be used and published on the Elexon website.

P418 Report Phase Consultation

Summary

P418 aims to ensure the Legal Text for approved BSC Modification P383 properly reflects the approved solution, business requirements, and is aligned with the BSC baseline introduced by P344, P354 and P388. In particular, it will clarify that the solution being delivered by P383 is applicable to both Supplier Base Balancing Mechanism (BM) Units and Additional BM Units.

P413 Assessment Procedure Consultation

Summary

We have issued P413 ‘Enable Elexon to be the Programme Manager for the implementation of Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement’ for Assessment Procedure Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by 15 January 2021 .

P413 will require Elexon to provide Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement (MHHS) Implementation Management services under the BSC, as the BSC Company (BSCCo), where Ofgem determines that Elexon shall provide some or all of these services. These services may include activities and responsibilities relating to MHHS programme management, system integration and programme party co-ordination (or any part of these). Elexon may also appoint a MHHS Implementation Assurance Provider, depending on Ofgem’s preference.

Under the Proposed Modification, Elexon’s costs in providing MHHS Implementation Management services will be recovered from BSC Trading Parties by market share (through the BSC’s existing Main Funding Share mechanism). The Workgroup also seeks views on a potential Alternative Modification that would recover these costs solely from Suppliers by market share (through a new Specified BSC Charge).

P413 will enable Elexon to participate in any competitive tender exercise used to appoint MHHS Implementation Management services. Any Elexon bid costs will be recovered from BSC Trading Parties through the Main Funding Share, but will be subject to a cap.

P402 Second Assessment Procedure Consultation

Summary

We have issued P402 ‘Enabling reform of residual network charging as directed by the Targeted Charging Review’ for Assessment Procedure Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by Tuesday 27 October 2020.

The purpose of this second P402 Assessment Procedure Consultation is to invite BSC Parties and other interested parties to provide their views on the merits of the P402 Proposed and Alternative Solutions. In particular, the Workgroup seeks your views on the Alternative Modification Proposal, which was raised by the Workgroup in response to the first Assessment Procedure Consultation. The P402 Workgroup will then discuss the consultation responses, before making a recommendation to the BSC Panel at its meeting on 16 January 2020 on whether or not to approve P402.

P402 will introduce new reporting requirements on LDSOs and BSCCo that will ensure the provision of data to enable the NETSO to set TNUoS demand residual tariffs and enable accurate billing of subsequent charges.

Please send your response to [email protected] using the form attached to the consultation by Tuesday 15 December 2020.

P379 Cost Benefit Analysis Consultation

Summary

We have issued P379 ‘Multiple Suppliers through Meter Splitting’ for Cost Benefit Analysis Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by Friday 15 January 2021.

P379 will enable consumers to be supplied by multiple Suppliers through Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) Settlement Meters at the Boundary Point. P379 will allow multiple Suppliers to compete for the supply or export of electricity through a single Meter without needing to establish an agreement between all of the Suppliers involved for every instance.

We invite you to respond to this Assessment Procedure Consultation to provide your views on the expected costs and benefits of P379.

Please send your response to [email protected] using the form attached to the consultation by Friday 22 January 2021.

P375 – Report Phase Consultation

Summary

P375 proposes using Metering Equipment ‘behind’ the defined Boundary Point for Balancing Services (‘behind the Meter’), for Settlement purposes rather than the Boundary Point Meter.

This will allow balancing-related services on-site to be separated from imbalance-related activities, more accurately reflecting the balancing-energy volumes provided by the Balancing Service Provider (BSP).

P414 Report Phase Consultation

Summary

P414 ‘Allowing a Party to Withdraw from the BSC and transfer outstanding liabilities to another Party’ seeks to improve the BSC exit arrangements. It will allow a BSC Party to withdraw from the Code as soon as practicable after serving a notice of withdrawal provided that all liabilities under the Code are satisfied or transferred to another BSC Party through a transfer of its BSC party ID to that legal entity.

P402 Assessment Procedure Consulation

Summary

We have issued P402 ‘Enabling reform of residual network charging as directed by the Targeted Charging Review’ for Assessment Procedure Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by Tuesday 27 October 2020.

P402 will introduce new reporting requirements on LDSOs and BSCCo that will ensure the provision of data to enable the NETSO to set TNUoS demand residual tariffs and enable accurate billing of subsequent charges. To ensure that NETSO receives the data it requires, P402 introduces processes that require the provision, consolidation and validation of three types of data to NETSO (Monthly Billing data, Annual Tariff Setting data and Unmetered Supplies (UMS) data), the creation of two new reports to NETSO and an update to the P0210 ‘TNUoS Report’.

We invite you to respond to this Assessment Procedure Consultation to provide your views on the Workgroup’s initial recommendations for P402.

 

Please send your response to [email protected] using the form attached to the consultation by Tuesday 27 October 2020.
