The Transmission Company propose that GSP HOLL_1 is allocated to the London (_C) GSP Group.

P350: Methodology for Load Periods and Sample Settlement Periods Consultation 19 June 2019

Summary

Modification P350 ‘Introduction of a seasonal Zonal Transmission Losses scheme’ introduced a Transmission Loss Factor (TLF) for each TLF Zone and BSC Season, so transmission losses can be allocated on a geographical basis. P350 went live on 1 April 2018.

This Consultation details the proposed methodology for setting Load Periods and Sample Settlement Periods to be used in the derivation of Zonal TLFs, as required by the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC).

Response

We encourage you to respond to this consultation using the consultation pro-forma. The consultation period will end on Friday 5 July 2019 at 17:00. Please return responses to: market.operations@elexon.co.uk.

At the end of the consultation period, ELEXON will consider all responses and, if required, update the methodology accordingly. The methodology, along with all consultation responses, will be presented to the Imbalance Settlement Group (ISG) meeting next month to request approval of both the methodology and actual LPs and SSPs.

Upon approval, ELEXON will publish the actual LPs and SSPs on the website on or before 31 August 2019. 

DWG’s consultation on transitioning to Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement

Summary

The DWG has developed its approach for transitioning from the current Settlement arrangements to the Target Operating Model (TOM) for Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement (MHHS).

This consultation is your opportunity to comment on the transition approach as developed by the DWG, before Ofgem makes the final decision whether to approve it.

MHHS is a fundamental reform that will affect both existing and future participants in the energy market. The DWG therefore encourages views from all stakeholders.

Consultation on reducing CADL and DMAT parameters in 2018

Summary

We issued a consultation on the value of the pricing parameters De Minimis Acceptance Threshold (DMAT) and Continuous Acceptance Duration Limit (CADL). These parameters are used to classify and remove actions as part of the Imbalance Price Calculation.

We are proposing reducing CADL from 15 minute to 10 minutes and reducing DMAT from 1MWh to 0.1MWh.

Responses

If you have any views on views on the CADL and DMAT review,  please respond using the consultation response form and send your responses, entitled “CADL / DMAT Review 2018”, to  market.operations@elexon.co.uk by 17:00 on Friday 9 November 2018.

Consultation on how to align BSC reporting with EMR Regulations

Summary

The Schedule of EMR Settlement Data (which was agreed by ELEXON, LCCC, ESC and EMRS in 2015) specifies that EMRS will be provided with a BM Unit Gross Demand Report, containing the gross demand data that EMRS requires in order to calculate the payments due from each licensed Supplier.

But, since then, ELEXON has become aware of two evolutions:

  • In July 2017, BEIS and Ofgem published their joint Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan. This plan makes clear that BEIS and Ofgem now interpret the definition of ‘supply’ in the Electricity Act as meaning that the Supplier Obligation is not payable in relation to supply to premises occupied by a generator licence holder for the purpose of carrying out activities authorised under the generation licence, even if the generation is not ‘Licensable’.
  • ELEXON has been approached by parties seeking to facilitate exempt supply (by the operators of community generation assets to local customers) under the class A supply licence exemption. Because this supply is not being made by a licensed Supplier it should not be subject to EMR charges, but currently the BM Unit Gross Demand Report sent to EMRS includes these volumes in the gross demand for the licensed Supplier who has registered metering on behalf of the exempt supplier.

The consultation document seeks views on how we should progress interim and enduring solutions to these issues. The BSC Panel will consider responses to the consultation at their meeting on 8 November 2018.
