P244 – Provision of BritNed flow data to the BMRS
Formal title: Provision of BritNed flow data to the BMRS
The Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service (BMRS) publishes a range of market data sourced from the Transmission Company, including details of generation by fuel type. This generation information is broken down into 11 different fuel categories, two of which represent flows from the England-France and Northern Ireland-Scotland Interconnectors. A third interconector joining England and the Netherlands (‘BritNed’) is scheduled to begin operations in late 2010.
P244 aims to include data relating to the Netherlands-England Interconnector (BritNed) on the BMRS, which is scheduled to become operational in late 2010. P244 also makes allowances in the BSC for future Interconnector data to be incorporated into the BMRS without the need for a Modification Proposal.
On 20 January, the Authority approved the Alternative Modification for P244 and was implemented as part of the November 2010 Release.
