We are continually updating the Settlement Services we provide, to enhance the customer experience, to comply with the latest Regulations and Rules, and ensure it remains fit for purpose.
We work collaboratively with Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC) for Contracts for Difference (CfD) and Electricity Settlement Company (ESC) for the Capacity Market (CM) schemes on all changes. As part of our governance the changes we undertake are approved via LCCC and ESC.
This section highlights and provides visibility on the approved changes to our systems and services. Ensuring Capacity Providers, CfD Generators and Suppliers have the necessary information they need to prepare for any future change.
For each change, we will provide the following information:
- Supporting Information
BSC Modification P395 – Final Consumption Levy
Authorisation Changes in My EMRS
My EMRS to include Direct Debit for Suppliers

Additional updates to EMR Backing Data
Types of change
The two main types of changes that are implemented are:
- Regulatory change
- Service improvement
Regulatory change are required to ensure the service remains compliant with changes to the Regulations and Rules for the schemes we operator on behalf of LCCC and ESC.
Service improvement ensures the service provided continues to be best in class for Capacity Providers, CfD Generator and Suppliers as our customers. This can include small improvements to processes and interfaces or more significant service improvements e.g. a new Service Desk platform. Service improvements can be delivered as small incremental changes or a larger package of changes. EMRS may seek industry views to help inform service improvements.
