Gearing up for go-live of faster switching reforms
Elexon is helping the industry to get set for the go-live of the Central Switching Service (CSS) this summer as part of Ofgem’s Switching Programme.

Ending the ‘Coronavirus Disapplication Period’ for Supplier Charges
On 12 May, we issued BSC Circular EL03581, which gave notice to BSC Parties that the ‘Coronavirus Disapplication Period’ for Supplier Charges will be ending. This means that, from September 2022, Supplier Charges for SP08 will be reapplied from the September Performance Assurance Reporting and Monitoring System (PARMS) Reporting Period.
How we’re helping to spot GSP metering errors sooner
In the past eight years, we have identified five Grid Supply Point (GSP) Metering errors, equal to around 1.4% of the total number of GSP Meters. These errors have caused energy to be recorded incorrectly. As any unaccounted energy is allocated to BSC Parties through GSP Group Correction and Transmission Losses, such metering errors can present a large impact on the allocation of energy and therefore the accuracy of Trading Charges to BSC Parties.
We are publishing a beta version of our GSP change-point detection model to gather feedback from participants and help us identify other areas where central analytics and reporting could support industry in mitigating risks to Settlement.
