My EMRS has successfully been launched

Low Carbon Contracts Company (LCCC), the Electricity Settlements Company (ESC) and EMRS are excited to announce My EMRS has been successfully implemented.

This is a new digital solution for Capacity Providers, CfD Generator and electricity Suppliers to register and maintain their registration details. Moving these processes to a digitalised platform provides numerous benefits, such as a paperless registration process, reduction of manual processes and provides a real-time view of registration details.

We have produced a short video to show you My EMRS and highlight some of the key features.

To support EMR Parties we have published G25 – My EMRS Registration User Guide to also help support with any queries. A link to My EMRS is now available the homepage for increased accessibility. This is located in the top right-hand corner.

Further supporting information on the Registration and Amendments processes is located within the Stakeholder Support webpages and select the relevant role, either Capacity Provider, CfD Generator or electricity Supplier (CfD or CM).
