Update (20 Jan 2022)

The Credit Committee has been monitoring market data and held a meeting on 20 January 2022 to decide if the last notified CAP value of £340/MWh was still reflective of the recent market data and/or to propose a new CAP value for consultation.

The Credit Committee decided to cancel the last notified CAP value of £340/MWh, which was due to go live on 25 January 2022.

They also proposed a new CAP value of £245/MWh, which will go live on 8 February 2022. The next scheduled Credit Committee meeting is on 27 January where a new CAP could potentially be proposed. Therefore, the minimum duration of the new proposed CAP (£245/MWh) will be between 8 February 2022 and 15 February 2022.

We have provided more information on the rationale for this proposed CAP on the consultation webpage. Parties are invited to respond by 17:00 on Monday 24 January 2022.

Consultation for a generic Metering Dispensation based on D/534

Seagreen Wind Energy Limited (SWEL) has applied for a site specific Metering Dispensation for a solution to the issue of metering its Low Voltage Direct Current (LVDC) supplies on its Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm. SWEL would be happy for it to be generic, as long as this does not introduce any delay.

We are seeking views on whether D/534 could be made generic instead of site specific, and whether it could be adapted to be more generic by including the various solutions under D/461 and D/474 and these Metering Dispensations end dated.


Outcome (11 January)

The SVG and ISG approved D/534 as we recommended subject to the condition that the Direct Current (DC) metering solution is not used for measuring DC supplies to customers for billing purposes. We have updated the Statement of Generic Metering Dispensations to reflect their decisions. You can find more details about the consolidated solution to metering LVDC supplies on Offshore Wind Farms on the statement.

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 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 £32/MWh from the last notified value of £36/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 15 April 2020, 10 Business Days after the consultation closes. The trigger level will also decrease to
+/- £3/MWh.

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

No responses were in disagreement with the new suggested CAP value. However today, Monday 30 March, the Reference Price is £29.68/MWh, and therefore the Credit Committee decided to confirm a new CAP value of £30/MWh.

On Thursday 16 April 2020, the CAP value will decrease from £36/MWh to £30/MWh. As a result, Parties may notice a change in their Credit Cover Percentage, and should review the amount of Credit Cover lodged.

Changes to the CAP Review Process: 12 August 2019

We invite Trading Parties to indicate whether they agree with the proposal to set new CAP values based on the estimated reference price on the implementation date of the new CAP. We also invite Parties to indicate if they agree the trigger level (the value from which if the reference price deviates by, then a review of the CAP is triggered) should be automatically set. These proposed changes will allow for a more efficient process whilst maintaining the necessary levels of control.

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

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.

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

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).

Outcome

No responses were in disagreement with using the suggest methodology to calculate the Load Periods (LPs) and Sample Settlement Periods (SSPs). The methodology, and the new LPs and SSPs for BSC Year 2020/21, were presented to the Imbalance Settlement Group (ISG) in July 2019. These were approved by the ISG and were published on the TLF Determination page of the Elexon Portal.

View Consultation on how to align BSC reporting with EMR Regulations

Consultation on how to align BSC reporting with EMR Regulations

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.

The Market Index Definition Statement (MIDS) defines the way the Market Index Price – used to determine the ‘reverse’ Energy Imbalance Price – is calculated. We review the MIDS annually, as required by the Balancing Settlement Code (BSC).

However, the calculation could better reflect trades close to Gate Closure. We recommend excluding trades more than eight hours ahead of Gate Closure rather than the current 12 hours.

Due to some amendments made, Price changes has been updated to version 2 below.
