BSC Panel

The BSC Panel plays an important role in helping to ensure that the provisions of the BSC are given effect; it must do so promptly, fairly, economically, efficiently, transparently and in such a manner as will promote effective competition in the generation, supply, sale and purchase of electricity.

About the Panel

The BSC Panel plays an important role in helping to ensure that the provisions of the BSC are given effect; it must do so promptly, fairly, economically, efficiently, transparently and in such a manner as will promote effective competition in the generation, supply, sale and purchase of electricity.

The BSC Panel is a group of industry experts and consumer representatives. Its role is to govern the BSC and ensure that all Parties comply with the code’s rules. The Panel also assesses BSC rule change proposals (called Modifications) and votes on whether to approve or reject a Modification.

In cases where the change has a material impact on BSC Parties, the Panel makes a recommendation to Ofgem on whether the change should be approved or not.

Remote meetings due to COVID-19

We have decided that we will not be re-opening the office to external visitors, save in exceptional circumstances, 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.

BSC Panel Elections

Every two years, five industry members are appointed to the BSC Panel.

Elexon facilitates these appointments via our election process and all the relevant information can be found on the BSC Panel Elections page.
