P437 Report Phase Consultation

This Modification proposes to introduce a provision in Section L ‘Metering’ to allow the relevant Meter Operator Agent to apply for Metering Dispensations on behalf of a non-BSC Party.

The solution will see non-BSC Parties being able to request Metering Dispensations for the relevant MOA (Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) for SVA sites, Central Volume Allocation (CVA) for CVA sites) to apply on their behalf.

This Modification seeks to allow the Funds Administration Agent (FAA) to process a Default Funding Share for unpaid Trading Charges earlier to reduce the cost of the borrowing facility and reduce the risk of shortfall. The Modification will also allow the Panel to instruct the FAA to release Trading Charges where the default relates to an Energy Supply Company Administration (ESCA).

P446 Urgent Modification Consultation

This Modification seeks to enable Elexon (BSCCo) to implement and administer the payment scheme for Suppliers as part of the Government’s Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) scheme for domestic electricity customers. The intention of the subsidy would be to reduce consumer tariffs in light of the recent rises in energy costs.

P427 Report Phase Consultation

This Modification seeks to amend BSC Section Z to allow the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) to recommend that the Panel publish notices to industry in respect of Performance Assurance Parties’ (PAPs’) contribution to Settlement Risk along with relevant risk data.

This will increase the effectiveness of all detective and investigative Performance Assurance Techniques (PATs) including Error and Failure Resolution (EFR) through greater incentives. Improved efficiency of Performance Assurance Framework (PAF) with swifter resolution rates to EFR plans and any other significant issues that impact Settlement is expected.

P425 Report Phase Consultation

This Modification aims to reduce the requirement from two or more Suppliers, to one or more Suppliers, to be involved in a Shared Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) Metering Arrangement.

This would allow multiple Suppliers to continue facilitating Shared SVA Metering Arrangements, while also allowing a single Supplier to make use of such an arrangement.

P437 Assessment Procedure Consultation

P437 will amend BSC Section L ‘Metering’ and BSCP32 ‘Metering Dispensations’ to permit BSCCo (Elexon) to submit a Metering Dispensation application on request from a party, other than the Registrant of the applicable Metering System for new connections.

The incoming Registrant of the applicable new connections site will be notified by Elexon of any Metering Dispensation. Registrants will also be able to check for any Metering Dispensation on the existing Statement of Site Specific Dispensation and Generic Metering Dispensation log.

P434 Assessment Procedure Consultation

This Modification will require a period of mandatory Change of Measurement Class (CoMC) activity for all Non-Half Hourly (NHH) Unmetered Supplies (UMS) Metering Systems running from October 2023 to October 2024. It will also require all new UMS connections to be settled Half Hourly (HH) from October 2023.

If the transition for NHH UMS Metering Systems is not brought forward, combined with the workload from other MHHS activities, It will significantly increase the risk that there will be insufficient time for Customers, Suppliers and UMSOs to address any issues that may arise with the transition to the MHHS Target Operating Model.

P432 Report Phase Consultation

This Modification proposes to align the BSC definition of an Advanced Meter with that in the Standard License Conditions (SLC) and to set explicit Half Hourly (HH) Settlement obligations for Current Transformer (CT) Advanced Meters ahead of the migration to Market-wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS). 

Summary

Market-wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS) requires that all Metering System Identifiers (MSIDs) are settled on a Half Hourly (HH) basis and moved to the MHHS Target Operating Model. The Code Change and Development Group (CCDG) has recommended moving Current Transformer (CT) Advanced Meters to settle HH by October 2023 in its consultation on the Transition Approach for MHHS. If this recommendation is not implemented the risk is that there will be insufficient time for Customers, Suppliers and their Agents to address issues that may arise will be increased, especially against the backdrop of the larger MHHS migration activities that will be needed for smart Meters.

  • Inconsistent definitions of Advanced meter in the BSC versus Electricity Supply Standard Licence Conditions; and
  • The risk of not meeting MHHS Transition Timetable leading to Settlement errors.

P432 seeks to align the BSC definition of an Advanced Meter with that in the SLC and to set explicit HH Settlement obligations for CT Advanced Meters ahead of the migration to MHHS. Existing CT Advanced Meters settling NHH are expected to migrate using the Change of Measurement Class (CoMC) process to settle HH by October 2023 and all new connections for CT Advanced Meters will be expected to settle HH from October 2022. Any opt-out/in rights for customers under the SLC are reflected in the P432 solution.

P440 Report Phase Consultation

The BSC does not currently allow Elexon to undertake administrative activities that would support the Capacity Market Advisory Group (CMAG). This does not align to Ofgem’s decision to appoint Elexon to undertake the CMAG administrative activities on its behalf.

This Modification should enable Elexon as the BSCCo to conduct the administrative process work for the CMAG, on a not for profit basis, that Ofgem is awarding to Elexon (subject to this Modification) per its decision dated 9 May 2022.

Elexon shall:

  • be required by the BSC to create, maintain and operate the CMAG processes in support of the Change Process for the Capacity Market Rules guidance, that Ofgem publishes;
  • be accountable to Ofgem rather than the BSC Panel for operating and maintaining (including changing) the CMAG processes; and
  • recover its costs for the administrative work from BSC Parties in proportion to their market share through the main funding share.

P395 proposes to amend BSC systems and processes so that the SAA-I042 ‘BM Unit Gross Demand Report’ only includes electricity ‘supplied’ to premises by licensed Suppliers, and therefore excludes electricity imported by Generators operated by a licensee for generation activities (i.e. those activities authorised by their generation licence to carry on).
