Consultation on the proposed approach to calculating supplier demand for EMR charging

We’ve published a consultation on the proposed approach to calculating supplier demand for EMR charging. The consultation is looking at which Balancing Mechanism (BM) Unit data is used to calculate the total demand for each electricity supplier, in order to calculate charges payable under the Contracts for Difference (Electricity Supplier Obligations) Regulations 2014 and the Electricity Capacity (Supplier Payment) Regulations 2014 (subject to being laid before Parliament).

Who does this impact?

This consultation is of interest to all electricity suppliers, as it includes the BM Units we will use to calculate a suppliers demand for CFD and CM. We are particularly interested in those electricity suppliers who own a Licensable power station and where the associated BM Units are registered to a company that also holds a Supply Licence.

How do I respond to this consultation?

To respond to this consultation please:

We’ve issued EMR Circular 20 which provides full details or please look at our consultations page.
