The Panel approved the revised Implementation Date on 8 August 2016. As a result , P297 and P321 are now included the scope of the June 2017 Release.


Interim Solution to P321

We have implemented an interim solution to replicate the core requirements of  P321 as closely as possible.  By necessity this will be a less automated solution, with the data being compiled by Elexon using our internal analysis tools, rather than being generated as part of the routine Settlement process.  They key aspects of this interim solution are as follows:

  • Reports will be published on a monthly basis, as per the 2016/17 publication calendar above;
  • The data in the report will be restricted to Initial Settlement (SF) only;
  • The report will be a single, downloadable Excel/CSV file containing data for all SF runs in the monthly reporting period;
  • The report will be hosted on the P321 page on the Elexon Website.

The first report is due to be published on 1 August 2016.

The publication calendar for the remainder of this BSC year is :
