P390 ‘Allowing extensions to ELEXON’s business and activities, subject to additional conditions’

Formal title: Allowing extensions to ELEXON’s business and activities, subject to additional conditions

Current Status

Initial Written Assessment
Assessment Procedure
Report Phase
With Authority
Awaiting Implementation


The BSC restricts the activities of ELEXON and in the absence of a specific Modification any additional activities cannot be pursued by ELEXON (even when those activities would be of benefit to BSC Parties, industry generally and/or the consumer). 

In the past specific Modifications have been necessary which have enabled ELEXON to provide the Warm Homes Discount Reconciliation service, EMR settlement, and to participate in gas performance assurance framework and REC manager appointment processes.

Such individual Modifications to extend ELEXON’s vires are time consuming and can be an unnecessary distraction for industry. They can also result in ELEXON being unable to pursue an opportunity within a required timeframe.

P390 seeks to introduce a framework into the BSC that allows the ELEXON Board to determine whether ELEXON can undertake additional activities provided certain conditions are met.

All of the conditions introduced in previous Modifications to ELEXON’s vires, P330 ‘Allowing ELEXON to tender for the Uniform Network Code Gas Performance Assurance Framework Administrator (PAFA) role’ and P365 ‘Enabling ELEXON to tender for the Retail Energy Code (REC)’ are included, plus some additional conditions to safeguard the interests of BSC Parties.


P390 was raised by E.ON on 12 August 2019. 

We are aiming to hold the first Workgroup for P390 in W/C 30 September or W/C 7 October. If you would like to join the Workgroup, please contact Ivar Macsween on 020 7380 4270 or email bsc.change@elexon.co.uk and please use the Doodle Poll to indicate your availability by 19 August 2019.

Next Events

The BSC Panel will consider the Initial Written Assessment at its meeting on 12 September 2019, where it will agree how to progress this Modification.
