Successful implementation of EMRS changes to support the Stress Event Improvement Programme 2020

EMRS would like to inform Capacity Providers we have successfully implemented four changes. These changes support the Stress Event Improvement Programme 2020:

  • Online submission of Capacity Market Volume Reallocation Notifications (CMVRN) via the EMRS Portal
  • Confirmation of receipt for submission of Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) metered data
  • Emails to notify rejection of duplicate CMVRN Trade IDs

These improvements support the operational effectiveness for both Capacity Providers, ESC and EMRS particularly if a Capacity Market Stress Event did occur. These changes were progressed from the feedback received from the last Mock Stress Event.

In addition, the below change also relates to Capacity Providers:

  • Duplicate Rows in Capacity Payment Late Payment Interest (LPI) Table

Further details on each of the changes is available in EMRC224 – Update on the EMRS changes for the Stress Event Improvement Programme 2020.
