View Issue 89 Request for Information

Issue 89 Request for Information

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.

Credit Assessment Price (CAP) consultation: 25 March 2020

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.
The CAP review trigger level value will also reduce at +/- £3/MWh.

Consultation on the Market Index Definition Statement Review 2019

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 were made to the MIDS as part of BSC Modification P377 ‘Amending Gate Closure references in Market Index Data’, which was implemented on 18 April 2019.

Our yearly analysis suggests that there are no further changes to the MIDS required at this time, with the current Individual Liquidity Threshold (ILT), timeband weightings and product weightings remaining suitable.

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.
