The Weighting Factors for 2023/24 Delivery Year are now published in the Key Payment Figures 2023/24 on the website. You can locate these in the Settlement Data section and download the relevant year as required. To help, here is a direct link to the Key Payment Figures 2023/24.

The Capacity Market Supplier Charge, Supplier CM Credit Cover and Capacity Provider Payments vary from month to month during the Delivery Year, as the monthly weighting factors are applied in the calculations for these. As a result of the weighting factor, the highest payments are paid where demand is highest during the year and the lowest where demand is lowest.

Supporting guidance is available in G15 – CM Supplier Payments and G17 – Capacity Providers Payments to illustrate how the monthly weighting factors are applied.
