Market Reference Prices

Market Reference Prices are used to calculate CFD Generator payments. There are two classifications of generation under a CFD contract and each has its own Market Reference Price:

  • Baseload Technologies (such as biomass with CHP);
  • Intermittent Technologies (such as solar or wind).

EMRS calculates both these reference prices, known as the Intermittent Market Reference Price (IMRP) and the Baseload Market Reference Price (BMRP), on behalf of Low Carbon Contracts Company.

Baseload Market Reference Price

The BMRP is calculated on a seasonal basis pursuant to condition 15 of the Contract for Difference Standard Terms and Conditions. Baseload prices are calculated using a traded volume weighted average based on forward season data received from LEBA. The BMRP is published in April and October of each year.

Season BMRP
Winter 2018  62.55 £/MWh
Summer 2018  44.03 £/MWh
Winter 2017  47.14 £/MWh
Summer 2017  43.52 £/MWh
Winter 2016  43.67 £/MWh
Summer 2016  34.85 £/MWh

 

Intermittent Market Reference Price

The Intermittent Market Reference Price is calculated using day-ahead data received from EPEX SPOT  and N2EX. An IMRP is calculated for every hour of the day pursuant to condition 21 of the Contract for Difference Standard Terms and Conditions.

Strike Price Adjustments

Each year Strike Price Adjustments are calculated for the CFD contracts, which then apply from the relevant Indexation Anniversary. The purpose of these adjustments is to keep the Strike Prices aligned with movements in CPI inflation and electricity market charges (if applicable in the CFD contract).

The Balancing System Charge and TLM(D) Charge are each a Strike Price Adjustment,based on the Actual Balancing System Charge and the Actual TLM Charge respectively, as detailed in the Contract for Difference Standard Terms and Conditions.

The Actual Balancing System Charge is sourced from relevant data provided by the GB System Operator (in the case of BSUoS Charges) or ELEXON (in the case of RCRC Credits) for the period from 01 February in the calendar year immediately preceding the relevant Balancing System Charge Report Year to 31 January in such Balancing System Charge Report Year.

The Actual TLM(D) Charge is sourced from relevant data provided by a ELEXON for the period from 01 January in the calendar year immediately preceding the relevant TLM(D) Charge Report Year to 31 December in such TLM(D) Charge Report Year.

The Strike Price Adjustment calculation details for some CFD Generators is available within the below spreadsheet. This spreadsheet also contains the TLM(D) and BSUoS data for the relevant generator settlement period data used in calculating the Balancing System Charge Difference and the TLM(D) Charges Difference.
