2024 Elections

Elexon facilitates the nomination, election and appointment of Industry BSC Panel Members. The current Industry Members’ term of office expires in September 2024. The term of newly elected Panel Members will start on 1 October 2024 and run until 30 September 2026.

Election process

The rules governing the election process are in Section B Annex B-2 of the BSC.

Panel Elections guide explains the election process and how the votes are calculated.

Panel Members must act impartially and not be representative of any one Party or class of Parties. With the exception of the Panel Chairman, they are appointed for a period of two years.

Who can participate?

Each BSC Party which is a Trading Party on 20 June in the year of the election may nominate one candidate to stand for election as a BSC Panel Member.

Each voting Trading Party may submit a voting paper for each Energy account that it holds (i.e. a Production account and a Consumption account).

In some cases, Trading Parties may be affiliated with one another, so they will be treated as a Trading Party group by the BSC. Only one Trading Party in a Trading Party group can submit voting papers in the Industry Panel Member elections.

Voting eligibility

Trading Party Groups can vote in BSC Panel elections. More detail can be found in the Guidance Note on Determining Trading Party Groups

The current list of Trading Party Groups can be seen in the Elexon Voting Shares Register
