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.

Risk Evaluation Methodology (REM) 2019/20 Industry Consultation

Summary

This consultation asks respondents to review the Risk Evaluation Methodology 2019/20, and to submit any comments to ryan.dale@elexon.co.uk by 22 October 2018.

We are proposing a revised Risk Evaluation Methodology in line with Performance Assurance Framework Review. Responses to this consultation will be presented to the Performance Assurance Board meeting on 29 November 2018. No response will be taken to mean that you agree to the proposed changes.

This Risk Evaluation Methodology represents a key step in the Performance Assurance Framework Review and outlines a new approach to evaluating risk. We are keen to ensure that you hear about these changes and understand the impact they may have on BSC Parties. This change will also likely impact how we evaluate PAP risk contribution.

Webinar

To help you respond to this consultation, we will host a number of education webinars to provide an overview of the new methodology, and offer participants the opportunity to ask questions.
 
Recommended attendees for these seminars would be all Performance Assurance Parties, in particular any persons in Compliance, Risk or Operational Settlement roles.

If you would like to attend either of these webinars, please email events@elexon.co.uk.

MIDS Review 2018 Consultation

Summary

The Market Index Definition Statement (MIDS) defines the use of Market Index Data to calculate the Market Index Price (MIP), a price reflective of wholesale electricity for a Settlement Period in the short term market. An annual review of this document is required by the BSC, to ensure that the MIP is providing a reasonable reflection of the price of wholesale electricity in the short term market.

Changes to the MIDS timeband descriptions are recommended following BSC Modification P342, which decoupled the Submission Deadline for Energy Contract Volume Notifications (ECVNs) and Metered Volume Reallocation Notifications (MVRNs) from Gate Closure. BSC Modification P342 was implemented in November 2017.

Response

Please respond using the consultation response form and send your responses, entitled  ‘MIDS Review 2018 Consultation’ , to market.operations@elexon.co.uk  by 17.00 on Monday 22 October 2018.
