What is the latest on Electricity Intensive Industries Exemption?

DECC’s decision to adopt option B for the identification of data from exempt meters by Half Hourly Data Aggregators (HHDAs) in its ‘Electricity Intensive Industries exemption from CFD costs: Amendments to the Balancing and Settlement Code’ consultation.  Option B is whereby suppliers instruct their half-hourly data aggregator (HHDA) to send the volumes supplied to specific meters directly to the EMR Settlement via a data flow.

EMR Circular 30 provides details on the next steps with the BSC Changes (refer to the ORD006 page to view the redlining) and also the DTC changes to implement option B.  To support HHDA’s and suppliers we’ve published Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on HHDA metering solution.
