ElectraLink – Response to ‘Balancing & Settlement Code Modification Proposal 272 – draft impact assessment’December 23, 2013
In response to Ofgem’s consultation on Half-Hourly settlement of Profile Classes 5-8, ElectraLink has highlighted the impacts on the DTS and the value we believe we can bring to supporting the implementation.
ElectraLink has responded to Ofgem’s consultation on the potential implementation of Half-Hourly settlement of Profile Classes 5-8. In accordance with our central role as service provider of the Data Transfer Service (DTS) to the GB electricity market we have focused our response on those areas most closely aligned with our experience, knowledge and core competencies.
Whilst the potential increase in data is not insignificant, the DTN has the capacity to support such an increase without the need to upgrade its infrastructure, and therefore the transfer of this additional half hourly data would incur no additional incremental cost to industry.
