The Electricity Capacity (Amendment) Regulations 2017. Comes into force 1st November. These Regulations amend the Electricity Capacity Regulations 2014 (SI 2014/2043).
Amendments are made with the connection to the de-rating of DSR CMUs, the settlement body is now permitted to make deductions under certain conditions and the requirement to maintain applicant credit cover until a CMU is achieved is entrenched. Schedule 2 amends the Supplier Payment Regulations so that the capacity market supplier charge and settlements costs levy will be collected based on “gross demand”, instead of “net demand”.
