Britain’s utility markets are competitive and constantly evolving, requiring significant interaction between industry parties, regulators, policymakers and consumers. To make these interactions work, agreements and codes which function as industry ‘rule books’ ensure that markets work efficiently and all parties have access to a level playing field.
A central challenge within energy market governance is that as the market evolves and changes, so must the codes and agreements. This process of change needs to be managed in a structured, transparent and cost-effective way that is fair to everyone.
We provide secretarial services and change management to these codes and agreements:
The Distribution Connection and Use of System Agreement (DCUSA) is a multi-party contract between the licensed electricity distributors, suppliers and generators (CVA registrants) to govern the use and charging of the electricity distribution systems.
ElectraLink provides secretariat, financial and website management services for the DCUSA. We are also currently undertaking a digitalisation project to prepare the code for the future of the energy market.
