Proposal submitted to update data flows to support EMR backing data

We would like to inform Suppliers, CfD Generators and Capacity Providers that the MRA Development Board (MDB) at its October meeting agreed the Solution Pre-Assessment related to Electricity Market Reform (EMR) would go out for 30 working day impact assessment. At the MDB December meeting any feedback received will be discussed.

The DTC Solution Pre-Assessment Form (SPF) 107 – ‘Reporting of Additional EMR Backing Data’ proposes to make amendments to the following data flows:

What changes are included in DTC SPF 107 – Reporting of Additional EMR Backing Data?

Full details of the changes proposed can be view via the Solution Pre-Assessment Form submitted and the associated redlined appendices for the five data flows via the MRASCo website in the DTC SPF 107 – ‘Reporting of Additional EMR Backing Data’.

The aim of this proposal is to reduce the validation required for Suppliers, CfD Generators and Capacity Providers as the backing data within the data flows will align to what is issued. The associated data flows will be structured and named in line with the actual output from the Settlement Systems.

Within the SPF, the implementation to the Data Transfer Catalogue (DTC) is proposed for the November 2021 Release.

Who can respond to the SPF Impact Assessment?

MRA Parties will be responding to the SPF impact assessment. If any Suppliers, CfD Generators and Capacity Providers that are also MRA Parties wish to respond to this impact assessment can email [email protected] or call on 020 7090 1029 by close of play on 10 December 2020.

Next steps

Following the MDB meeting in December 2020, we will provide an update of the outcome from the meeting and how DTC SPF 107 – ‘Reporting of Additional EMR Backing Data’ will be progressed.

We have issued EMRC223 – ‘Proposal submitted to update data flows to support EMR backing data’ to communicate this to Suppliers, CfD Generators and Capacity Providers.
