Awaiting Implementation


P376 proposes to allow the Final Physical Notification which feeds into the Settlement of Trading Charges to be created via a Baselining Methodology. The new Physical Notification will be de-coupled from the Physical Notification used by National Electricity Transmission System Operator (NETSO) for dispatch. This change will allow Balancing Service Providers to be fully recompensed for their actual change from normal usage and the impact this change has on the system, thus enabling greater participation.


As per ELEXON’s communication concerning the impact of COVID-19 , we now expect to issue the Assessment Procedure Consultation in July 2020.
