Elexon’s response to National Grid ESO’s consultation on EBGL Article 52 ISH Amendment

In our response, we agree with NGESO’s proposal to amend the Imbalance Settlement Harmonisation (ISH) article to include the use of Market Index Price (MIP) in Settlement Calculations. We note that the inclusion of Market Index Price (MIP) is a valid component of system price calculations and is beneficial to both BSC Parties and consumers of electricity.

Elexon’s response to National Grid ESO’s consultation on their Strategy to Enable DSO

In our response, we express support for NGESO’s work to enable Distribution System Operators, and note our agreement that the ESO, DSOs and wider market processes need to be coordinated to achieve maximum value from the DSO transition. We also note a number of existing industry services that need to change in order to best accommodate new DSO capabilities.

Elexon’s response to Ofgem’s consultation on the Introduction of an Electricity System Restoration Standard

P416 Report Phase Consultation

We have issued P416 ‘Introducing a route of appeal for the Annual Budget in line with the proposals for the Retail Energy Code’ for Report Phase Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by 3 June 2021.

P416 seeks to amend the BSC to include an appeals mechanism to Ofgem that could be used to challenge items in the Annual Budget in line with the appeals mechanism detailed in proposals for the Retail Energy Code (REC).

The Proposed Solution contains the following key features:

  • Any BSC Party can raise an appeal against an Annual Budget line item within 10 WDs of the BSCCo Board issuing approval of the Annual Budget
  • Provisions to allow the Authority to respond to appeals by referring individual items back to the Board for reconsideration, powers to change costings or remove individual items from the Annual Budget, and powers to dismiss appeals that are trivial or vexatious or has no reasonable prospect of success.
  • Provisions to stop all of part of spend against appealed Annual Budget line items if specified conditions are met.

P420 Authority Led SCR Modification Consultation

We have issued P420 ‘Retail Code Consolidation Significant Code Review’ for Industry  Consultation, which you are invited to respond to by 17 June 2021.

P420 seeks to ensure the BSC aligns with Ofgem’s Retail Code Consolidation Significant Code Review, which consolidates a number of existing codes into the REC. The proposed changes have a direct impact on the BSC in terms of the transfer of the SVA Metering arrangements from the BSC to the REC and cross-code change procedures, as well as consequential changes reflecting the close down of the MRA.

P420 makes the necessary changes to reflect the code governance changes implemented through the Retail Code Consolidation SCR. Specifically, it will:

  1. Ensure the BSC reflects the close down of the MRA.
  2. Transfer operational procedures relating to Metering Point Lifecycle from the MRA to the BSC.
  3. Make the necessary changes to transfer SVA Metering arrangements to the REC, and facilitate a transition period for metering assurance.
  4. Insert the required drafting to give effect to the CCSG, which will be established under the REC to better facilitate cross-code change
