P365 Report Phase Consultation [Open]

  • Consultation Type: Change, Modification
  • Issue Date: 14 February 2018
  • Response Date: 27 February 2018
  • Related Modification Proposal: P365

Summary

P365 seeks to amend the BSC such that the ELEXON Board can determine whether to bid for the role of REC administrator (and perform the role if the contract is awarded to ELEXON). This will be done via a separate not for profit subsidiary (RECASCo), funded by ELEXON (through BSC Parties).

ELEXON operates on a not for profit basis, therefore if the ELEXON Board determines a bid should be submitted, the costs incurred will be borne by BSC Parties, with bid costs capped at the sum of £100k.

The proposed changes ensure that ELEXON is ring-fenced from any enduring operational costs and risks associated with performing the role of REC administrator.

  • P356

Summary

The P356 Assessment Report was presented to the Panel on 8 February 2018 and the Panel is now consulting on their views ahead of the Draft Modification Report being presented to the Panel on 8 March 2018.
