Issue 89 Request for Information

Summary

The BSC Panel has asked ELEXON to provide analysis on the cost and effort related to the DCE that occurred on 9 August 2019 (DCE00201). We are looking specifically at those costs incurred by parties, both direct and indirect, associated with the SAP that are required to be carried out to ensure Settlement is accurately calculated for the Settlement Periods impacted by the DCE. This analysis is being carried out for Issue 89 and P397.

The provision of this information is critical to meet the aim of Issue 89, to ensure the SAP is fit for purpose, and the aim for P397, to only run the SAP when the benefits outweigh the costs. Moreover, the provision of this information is needed to meet the Ofgem request in relation to P397. Your help and support in this matter is appreciated.

The Tongland 132kV substation currently feeds the _N GSP Group via two circuits with 132/11kV transformers, which form the existing GSP, GSP_TONG. The existing GSP is at the 11kV substation.

Scottish Power Energy Network (SPEN) is connecting two new circuits into the Tongland 132kV substation. The two new circuits will be connected via 132/33kV transformers to a 33kV substation.  The new circuits at the 33kV substation will be registered as a new GSP, to be known as Tongland_1, GSP_TONG1.

The Credit Assessment Price (CAP) is used in the Energy Indebtedness calculations to convert Credit Cover into an energy value. We are consulting on a decrease of the CAP to £41/MWh from the last notified value of £47/MWh. A change to CAP can impact the amount of Credit Cover required by a Trading Party.

If all respondents and Credit Committee members are in agreement, the proposed value will be implemented on Wednesday 12 February 2020 and the trigger level will remain the same.

If at least one respondent or Credit Committee member requests it or disagrees with the proposed value, ELEXON will arrange a Credit Committee meeting. The Credit Committee will determine if a change needs to be made to the value of the CAP, the trigger level and when any new value should be implemented.

Outcome
