On 6 March 2019, National Grid ESO raised P384.ELEXON and National Grid ESO presented the IWA to the BSC Panel on 14 March 2019. The Panel deferred its decision (in accordance with BSC Section F2.2.5) as it believed it had insufficient information available to enable it to decide how P384 should be progressed. ELEXON informed the Panel that since the IWA was submitted it had come to light that an incorrect assumption had been made in the impact assessment. Consequently, the costs and lead times will increase. A new impact assessment is needed to finalise the costs and lead times. Further, ELEXON highlighted that delivering P384 at the same time as P344 ‘Project TERRE’ would significantly increase the delivery risk profile. The Panel is therefore seeking further clarification on the costs, lead times and impacts of P384, the risks P384 may have on P344 delivery, and the interactions with National Grid ESO. ELEXON and National Grid ESO agreed to provide this information and present an update at the next Panel meeting on 11 April 2019.

Next Events

ELEXON will provide an update on the costs and impacts at the next scheduled Panel meeting on 11 April 2019. The Panel will decide how to progress P384.
