Consultation on changes to Capacity Market rules

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy is consulting on proposals for making changes to the Capacity Market Rules in order to comply with new EU carbon dioxide emissions limits. Consultation closes 6th September. The proposed changes are intended to ensure existing capacity or DSR components that do not comply with the limits (such as coal, diesel, and possibly some inefficient gas generation) cannot receive capacity payments from the date of 1st July 2025.
