Preparing for go live of Modification P395 ‘Aligning BSC Reporting with EMR Regulations – an enduring solution’, Elexon will host a webinar to explain in more detail what companies need to know so that they can benefit from the changes. If you are a Supplier, Generator, Half Hourly Data Collector, or Meter Operator Agent, these changes will be of interest to you.

The webinar will cover:

  • How P395 will work, and what the impact is on interested BSC Parties.
  • How to submit P395 Declarations through the new screens added to the Elexon Kinnect Customer Solution. This will, for example, allow a Supplier to register an asset in order to obtain an Asset Metering System ID (AMSID) Pair for P395. This can then be included in an EMR AMSID Declaration.
  • Explaining the opportunity for Suppliers and Registrants to familiarise themselves with the new functionality in industry testing (taking place w/c 16 October 2023)
  • Q&As with our presenters

What is P395?

Electricity Market Reform Services (EMRS) calculates the Final Consumption Levies (FCL) for each Supplier and Central Volume Allocation (CVA) Registrant. The FCLs recover costs for schemes such as Contracts for Difference and the Capacity Market. Registrants are the owners of meters.

Currently the FCLs are calculated by EMRS. The calculation is based on the Balancing Mechanism Unit Gross Demand provided by our BSC Systems in the SAA-I042 Settlement report interface.

However, the Electricity Act 1989’s definition of supply excludes electricity supplied by Suppliers to Generators, and Storage operated by Generation licensees should not be subject to FCLs. The joint Government and Ofgem smart systems and flexibility plan also states that FCLs should not be charged for such imports.

Currently EMRS is operating an interim solution to resolve this issue. The solution involves adjusts the Balancing Mechanism (BM) Unit Gross Demand to remove imports provided to generation and / or storage through Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) metering systems. This is being used where there is no final demand by consumers. However, EMRS cannot adjust the BM Unit Gross Demand for SVA-connected sites where there is also final demand, or for any Central Volume Allocation (CVA) connected sites.

See the P395 webpage for all of the background information on the Modification.
