P380 ‘Revision to Replacement Reserve Bid Data submission deadline requirements’
Formal title: Revision to Replacement Reserve Bid Data submission deadline requirements
Modifying the P344 wording of BSC Section Q ‘Balancing Services Activities’ to ensure National Grid ESO’s continued compliance with the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) and the Replacement Reserve Implementation Framework (RRIF).
Recent changes to the Replacement Reserve Implementation Framework (RRIF), specifically the Transmission System Operator (TSO) energy bid submission gate closure time for Replacement Reserves (RR), mean that National Grid as the GB Electricity System Operator (ESO) will not be able to be compliant with the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) obligations introduced under Modification P344 ‘Project TERRE implementation into GB market arrangements’.
This Modification proposes to modify the BSC Section Q ‘Balancing Services Activities’ wording introduced by P344 to ensure National Grid ESO’s continued compliance with the BSC and the RRIF.
Following Report Phase Consultation which ended on 4 March 2019, the Draft Modification Report was presented to Panel for decision on 14 March 2019. The Panel unanimously approved Modification P380 under Self-Governance. The Self-Governance appeal window closed on Wednesday 3 April 2019 and no appeals were received. This Modification is now currently waiting implementation.
The Initial Written Assessment (IWA) was presented to the BSC Panel at its meeting on 14 February 2019. The BSC Panel recommended that the Modification should be progressed direct to Report Phase, and that it met the Self-Governance criteria. The Panel also recommended the draft legal text and a proposed Implementation Date of 27 June 2019 as part of the scheduled June 2019 BSC Release. P380 was raised on 6 February 2019.
P380 will be implemented on Thursday 27 June 2019 as part of the June 2019 BSC Release.
