  1. BSC Panel 205 8 November 2012

  2. Report on Progress of Modification Proposals Adam Lattimore 8 November 2012

  3. Modifications Overview

  4. 205/04 P272 ‘Mandatory Half Hourly Settlement for Profile Classes 5-8’ David Kemp 8 November 2012

  5. P272: Issue (1 of 2) • Current arrangements: SVA Metering Systems below 100kW can be settled HH or NHH • Usually settled NHH, but Suppliers can elect to settle HH • Measurement Class used to reflect how a Metering System is settled • Profiled data used for NHH-settled sites • Consumption for each Settlement Period estimated using profiles • More accurate estimations once Meter reading obtained

  6. P272: Issue (2 of 2) • Changes to Supply Licence requirements • All new Meters for PC 5-8 customers must be advanced Meters • Capable of recording HH consumption and being accessed remotely • All PC 5-8 customers must have advanced Meters by 6 April 2014 • No mandate to settle these Meters HH • Can elect to continue to settle NHH • Proposer contends that settling such sites NHH is less accurate • Prudent to make better use of the HH data available

  7. P272: Proposed Solution • All PC 5-8 sites required to be settled HH from 1 April 2014 • Five days before mandate goes live • More appropriate date as aligns with start of BSC Year, the April contract round and annual processes (e.g. DUoS charging) • Transition plans submitted to PAB by 31 May 2013 • Allows for issues with transferring customers to be managed/mitigated (e.g. bulk CoMC)

  8. P272: Alternative Solution • All PC 5-8 sites required to be settled HH from 1 April 2015 • One year later – allows more time to manage issues • Transition plans submitted to PAB by 31 May 2014 • All other aspects/requirements unchanged from proposed solution • Implementation Date is the only difference

  9. P272: Impacts and Costs • Costs: • Central Costs: Approx. £19k (either solution) • Participant Impacts: • Suppliers • Distributors • HH & NHH Data Aggregators • Meter Operators & Meter Operator Agents • Document Impacts: • BSC Sections L, S, S-1 & X-1 • BSCP533 & Appendix A • Profile Administrator SD • PARMS URS

  10. P272: Implementation Date • Workgroup recommends Implementation Date for Proposed Modification of: • 1 April 2014 if approved on or before 14 February 2013 • Workgroup recommends Implementation Date for Alternative Modificationof: • 1 April 2015 if approved on or before 13 February 2014

  11. P272: Workgroup’s Previous Conclusions • Assessment Report was presented to Panel in January 2012 • By majority, Workgroup believed: • Neither Proposed nor Alternative was better than baseline • Alternative was better than Proposed • Workgroup recommended that both P272 Proposed and P272 Alternative were Rejected • Panel instructed Workgroup to undertake a cost-benefit analysis

  12. P272: Cost-Benefit Analysis (1 of 2) • Defined Cost Categories and potential Benefits for P272 • Data sought from Suppliers & Distributors through two consultations • Costs and benefits calculated up to 2020 • Defined range of estimates for costs and benefits • Due to range of costs provided and sensitivity of some benefits • Also considered scenarios where P272 was not implemented • Different levels of voluntary transition to HH elective by 2020

  13. P272: Cost-Benefit Analysis (2 of 2) • Proposed Modification: • Total Costs: £112m (range from £46m to £199m) • Total Benefits: £144m (range from £71m to £198m) • Gives net outcome of +£32m (range from –£129m to +£152m) • Alternative Modification: • Total Costs: £103m (range from £41m to £182m) • Total Benefits: £128m (range from £63m to £176m) • Gives net outcome of +£25m (range from –£120m to +£134m)

  14. P272: Workgroup’s Discussions (1 of 2) • Workgroup majority view: believe costs would outweigh benefits • Different views on whether costs outweigh benefits or vice versa • View that not all benefits would be realised, and that costs may be exceeded • Focusses on small segment of market • Significant impact • Better to do as part of a wider change?

  15. P272: Workgroup’s Discussions (2 of 2) • Consider DUoS pricing differential to be significant obstacle • Obstacle to moving to HH elective now • Dis-incentivise early migration under P272 • Current climate – avoid increasing customer bills • But view that P272 would encourage other changes in this area • HH Settlement good in principle, but not at any cost • Workgroup’s views largely unchanged following CBA

  16. P272: Responses to Original Consultation • Workgroup consulted Industry as part of original assessment • Majority supported P272 • Disagreed with Workgroup’s majority view • Views for/against were broadly in line with those of the Workgroup • Workgroup were unable to consult again following CBA

  17. P272: Applicable BSC Objectives

  18. P272: Conclusions • Workgroup has discharged its Terms of Reference • By majority, Workgroup believes: • Neither Proposed nor Alternative is better than baseline • Alternative is better than Proposed • Workgroup recommends that both P272 Proposed and P272 Alternative are Rejected

  19. P272: Recommendations (1 of 3) The P272 Workgroup invites the Panel to: • AGREEan initial recommendation that the P272 Proposed Modification should not be made; • AGREE an initial recommendation that the P272 Alternative Modification should not be made; • AGREE an initial recommendation that the Alternative Modification is better than the Proposed Modification; [Continues]

  20. P272: Recommendations (2 of 3) • AGREEan initial Implementation Date for the P272 Proposed Modification (if approved) of: • 1 April 2014 if an Authority decision is received on or before 14 February 2013; • AGREE an initial Implementation Date for the P272 Alternative Modification (if approved) of: • 1 April 2015 if an Authority decision is received on or before 13 February 2014; [Continues]

  21. P272: Recommendations (3 of 3) • AGREEthe draft legal text for the P272 Proposed Modification; • AGREE the draft legal text for the P272 Alternative Modification; • AGREE that P272 is submitted to the Report Phase; and • AGREE that ELEXON will issue the P272 draft Modification Report (including the draft BSC legal text) for a 15 Working Day consultation and will present the results to the Panel at its meeting on 13 December 2012.

  22. 205/05 ‘Aligning Supplier Charge SP08a calculation with current practice’ David Barber 8 November 2012

  23. Background • What are Supplier Charges? • Remedial technique, part of the Performance Assurance Framework overseen by PAB • Suppliers incur a charge on failing to meet certain performance standards • Compensates Parties disadvantaged by those not meeting those standards • 11 PARMS Serials that monitor Suppliers, of which 4 have associated Supplier Charges • Recommended Modification from the PAB concerns PARMS Serial SP08 • In particular SP08a ‘Percentage of Non-Half Hourly (NHH) Energy Settled on Annual Advances’

  24. Modification Proposal • The Issue: • Supplier Charges applicable to PARMS Serial SP08a are and have always been calculated using underperformance values rounded to 1 d.p. The Code requires this to be calculated to 2 d.p. • Proposed Solution: • PAB recommends that Modification is raise to amend Code Section S-1 to reflect that SP08a is calculated to 1 d.p. to reflect existing practice • How did the PAB get to its recommendation? • Error between PARMS and Code was identified • Two options: amend system (CP) or amend the Code (Modification) • Analysis carried out revealed cost of changing the systems outweighed the benefit of doing so • PAB considered both options, recommended a Modification should be raised

  25. Applicable BSC Objectives • Modification Proposal better facilitates the achievement of BSC Objective (d): • Removes potentially confusing inconsistency from the Code • Ensures that the alternative potentially costly PARMS changes and the resultant cost impact on parties is not needed

  26. Proposed Progression (1 of 2) • Recommend: Report Phase – approve • Merits of Proposal are self-evident: • Believe it is self-evident that an inconsistency exists between the Code and PARMS. Most efficient method to address issue is to amend the Code • Recommend Implementation Date of: • One working day after Self-Governance appeal window closes (8 January 2012) • No links with any current SCRs

  27. Proposed Progression (2 of 2) • We are requesting Self-Governance • We believe Proposal meets Self-Governance Criteria: • No material impact on consumers, competition, the Transmission System or BSC governance • Corrects a known inconsistency • No impacts on Parties, no change to how Supplier Charges are calculated • Will issue Self-Governance Statement to Authority and seek views of Report Phase Consultation respondents

  28. Recommendations We invite the Panel to: • RAISE the Modification Proposal in Attachment A; • SUBMIT the Modification Proposal directly to the Report Phase; • AGREE a provisional view that the Modification should be made; • AGREE a provisional Implementation Date of 08 January 2013; • AGREE the draft legal text in Attachment B; • AGREE a provisional view that the Modification meets the Self-Governance Criteria; and • AGREE that the Draft Modification Report should be issued for consultation and submitted to the Panel at its meeting on 13 December 2012.

  41. 205/06 REMIT: Reporting Inside Information David Osborne 8 November 2012

  42. REMIT transparency platforms: current GB situation • Information paper to the Panel. Why’s it come back to the Panel? • Revised ACER guidelines published • Discussion with a number of Parties indicate it is timely and appropriate for this topic to be raised with the Panel • January – BSC Panel requests ELEXON not to develop a REMIT inside information platform for GB electricity due to liability issues • September– ACER publishes revised REMIT Guidance: • Platforms should be used where available • Specified requirements for what should be published (wherever published) • Temporary failure of third party transparency platforms should not be seen as a breach of the disclosure obligation • Platforms should conform with “Regulated Information Service” requirements • Platforms should be able to send data to ACER/regulators and store it for at least 2 years • October– National Grid launches REMIT transparency platform for GB gas with liability disclaimers

  43. Suggested approach for GB electricityand Recommendation • Development of a central service platform for REMIT information disclosure under the BSC may have several advantages • The ability to define precise requirements with industry and regulatory approval under the BSC Modification process • The ability to define a system capable of meeting the RIS requirements, including the ability to operate and maintain administrative arrangements designed to prevent conflicts of interest with market participants; data storage for at least 2 years and the ability to onward report • If there is interest in this, a BSC Modification would be required • The BSC Panel is invited to NOTE paper 205/06
