Supplier Volume Allocation Group (SVG)
About the SVG
The SVG is responsible for overseeing the operation of the Supplier Volume Allocation processes and systems.
These processes include those associated with the SVA Agent, Supplier Agents and the Supplier Meter Registration Service.
The SVG meets monthly. Meetings are held in open session, with the exception of confidential or commercially sensitive items. Attendees can observe proceedings in open session, but cannot speak unless invited by the Chairman.
Applications to become an SVG Industry Member or Industry Alternate are welcome from anyone with relevant experience and expertise. Applicants must be nominated by a BSC Trading Party (who does not have to be their employer), obtain their employer’s agreement and agree to act impartially in accordance with the SVG’s Terms of Reference (see Related Content, right).
The BSC Panel considers and determines all applications. Members are expected to make themselves available at all reasonable times to attend meetings and to carry out their duties and functions as a Member. Where an Industry Member is unable to attend, they may appoint either one of the approved Industry Member Alternates or another Industry Member as their acting Alternate.
Remote meetings due to COVID-19
We have decided, save in exceptional circumstances, we will not be re-opening the Elexon office to external visitors until at least the beginning of 2021 and we will therefore continue to hold all meetings, committees and workgroups virtually. This was decided after viewing the feedback and results from an internal and external survey.
To recognise this prolonged change to our working arrangements, we have created a set of principles to be followed when holding online meetings. These principles will be highlighted at the beginning of each meeting to hopefully improve your virtual meeting experience.
