Suppliers are required, under the Electricity Capacity (Supplier Payment etc.) Regulations 2014, to provide a forecast of their Gross Demand for the Period of High Demand (Peak Period) for the 2018/19 Delivery Year, by 1 June 2018. This forecast is used to calculate Suppliers’ monthly Capacity Market Supplier Charge and monthly Credit Cover requirements.
On 3 May 2018 EMRS, on behalf of Electricity Settlements Company (ESC), issued the forecast template for Suppliers to submit their demand forecast. A Supplier submits a forecast if they believe they will have Gross Demand within the Peak Period for the 2018/19 Delivery Year. If a Supplier believes they will not have Gross Demand for this period they should submit a zero forecast and explain why in the commentary.

- What checks will EMRS carry out on submitted forecasts?
- What are the key dates?
- What are the escalation routes if forecasts aren’t submitted?
