We have issued Urgent Modification Proposal P378 ‘ Introduction of a CM Supplier Interim Charge’ for industry consultation, which you are invited to respond to by 5pm on Tuersday 29 January 2019.
P378 seeks to use the BSC to introduce a CM Supplier Interim Charge for Suppliers. This will act as a contingency fund to protect the industry, and customers, from a price shock in the event that the CM standstill is lifted and back payments are required to be made. The Modification solution is based on the recommendations of Issue 76.
We have issued P370 ‘Allow the Panel to designate non-BSC Parties to raise Modifications’ for Report Phase Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by Friday 25 January 2019. P370 seeks to allow the BSC Panel, instead of Ofgem, to designate interested third parties to raise Modification Proposals and for Ofgem to become the appeals body. P370 also opens up the Issues process to non-BSC Parties.
BSC Section T 1.5.3(b)(iii) defines ‘short term’ in relation to Market Index Data as a time period in reference to Gate Closure. Following BSC Modification P342 implemented in November 2017, the deadline for contracts for delivery in a Settlement Period has moved from Gate Closure to the Submission Deadline. P342 did not change the Market Index Definition Statement (MIDS) to reflect this. The 2018 MIDS Review is proposing to amend references of Gate Closure to the Submission Deadline to include trades taken in the hour prior to a Settlement Period in Market Index Data which will impact Market Index Data Providers. This change to the MIDS will need BSC Panel approval in November and approval from the Authority.
We have issued P370 ‘Allow the Panel to designate non-BSC Parties to raise Modifications’ for Assessment Procedure Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by Monday, 12 November 2018. P370 seeks to allow the BSC Panel, instead of Ofgem, to designate interested third parties to raise Modification Proposals and for Ofgem to become the appeals body. P370 also opens up the Issues process to non-BSC Parties.
P369 proposes to modify the Balancing Settlement Code (BSC) to reflect the creation of a new National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO) that is legally separate from National Grid Electricity Transmission Limited (NGET). Further information can be found on the P369 webpage.
This is the P369 Report Phase Consultation, whereby industry views are requested in respect of the BSC Panel’s initial recommendations on the Modification.
