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.

 

Issue 88 Request For Information

Summary

The provision of this information will inform the Issue 88 Workgroup of the industry’s current understanding of Complex Site arrangements in relation to netting of Import/Export volumes and estimation techniques.

CP1535 Implementation Date Consultation

Summary

Consultation on bringing forward the CP1535 Implementation Date from 1 April 2021 to 3 December 2020 due to the further delay of TERRE go-live.

P375 Assessment 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).

P375 arose from Issue 70 ‘Settlement of Secondary BM Units using metering at the asset’.

P398 Assessment Phase Consultation

Summary

In June 2019 the Energy Data Task Force (EDTF) published its report ‘A Strategy for a Modern Digitalised Energy System’. One of its recommendations was that the energy sector should ‘adopt the principle that Energy System Data should be Presumed Open’. The EDTF report recommends that BEIS and/or Ofgem should use legislative and regulatory powers to achieve this recommendation.

The BSC does not fully adhere to open data principles however, by taking action now, we can remain at the forefront of industry development and will be able to create the precedence for industry to follow/emulate.

P398 proposes amending the BSC so that all data is assumed open unless there is a reason otherwise. The Panel (or delegated Sub-Committee) will determine if there is any reason not to make data available. This will be done based on a transparent process of triage and categorisation. In the longer term, we will look at an IT solution to make accessing BSC data even easier than having to make a formal request for release/publication.

P399 – Assessment Procedure Consultation

Summary

P399 seeks to include additional information in the Balancing Services Adjustment Data (BSAD) to identify the assets involved in bilateral trades.

Currently, each Balancing Adjustment Action taken outside the Balancing Mechanism is reported with a unique sequential number. The Proposer contends that this does not identify the counterparty to the bilateral trade and creates an information advantage to those counterparties, reducing transparency in the operation of the system creating a barrier to effective competition.

P397 Report Phase Consultation v2.0

Summary

P397 seeks to introduce a mechanism through which the Balancing and Settlement Code Company (BSCCo) determines whether Licensed Distribution System Operators (LDSOs), the National Electricicty Transmission System Operator (NETSO), certain Party Agents and BSC Agents, and BSCCo should carry out the Settlement Adjustment Processes following a DCE. BSCCo would determine the nature of the DCE and, where necessary, determine and compare the costs and value of the DCE in order to determine whether the value of carrying out the Settlement Adjustment Processes outweigh the costs.

P411 Report Phase Consultation

Summary

P411 aims to improve the effectiveness of the Qualification Performance Assurance Technique (PAT) by requiring new Licensed Distribution System Operators (LDSOs) to undergo Qualification in this role. This will provide assurance to industry participants that new LDSOs are able to fully execute their BSC Role and obligations when active in the market.
