This is the Report Phase Consultation for P332 ‘Revisions to the Supplier Hub Principle’.
This Modification seeks to address issues associated with customer preferred Supplier Agents. The proposed solution is a side letter between Elexon and Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) Data Collectors (DCs) which will enable a Supplier who does not have a direct contract with the DC to enforce, as a last resort, the side letter as a proxy contract, to ensure that BSC obligations are met. The proposed solution will now apply to SVA DCs only as SVA Meter Operator governance will move from the BSC to the Retail Energy Code (REC) from 1 September 2021 as part of Retail Code Consolidation (RCC).
In our response, we agreed with the proposed framework objectives and hierarchy set out within the consultation. We noted that both proposals should enable the effective delivery of MHHS. We also make suggestions on Workgroup attendee requirements and note that constituency representatives should only include the Code Bodies.
In our response, we note that Ofgem has a key role to play in the energy transition to net zero alongside BEIS. We also note that as new energy markets come into play, Ofgem will need to have an equal oversight and ability to extend its existing regulatory framework to these new markets to ensure there is a similar regulatory regime and oversight. In our response, we suggest that certain areas of the Energy Codes Reform be prioritised.
This Modification aligns the BSC with the provisions introduced into the Grid Code under GC0144 ‘Alignment of Market Suspension Rights to the EU Emergency and Restoration Code Article 35.1(b)’
Elexon’s response to Ofgem’s consultation on Switching Programme Significant Code Review: Retail Energy Code v3.0
In our response, we provided some comments around the redlining of REC v3.0 and noted that some other parameters need to be confirmed before Elexon proceeds with the required redlining. More specifically, Elexon asked for clarification around CR-D059 ‘Changes to support Energy Company Data’ and made some comments with regards to the Energy Market Data Specification (EMDS) and around the governance arrangements for the Supplier Meter Registration Service (SMRS).
