In our response, we are supportive of Ofgem’s Forward Work Programme (FWP) for 2022/23. We made comment on four of the ten points in Ofgem’s FWP, as we limited our response to areas where we could add value. In our response, we suggest that for future work programmes that Ofgem include timelines and diagrams, as they have in the past.
We support Ofgem’s work to strengthen and build retail market resilience within the energy sector.
At Elexon, we have made a concerted effort to support Supplier’s wherever possible and will continue to do so. We also agree with Ofgem’s view that a smart and flexible energy system is essential, not only to reduce the cost of energy, but also to reach Net Zero.
In our response, we highlight the several BSC modifications and initiatives that we are progressing that support full chain flexibility, such as P375, P375 and MHHS. Furthermore, we note that through the investment of our new Kinnect platform, we support Ofgem’s focus on consumer benefits through data and digitalisation.
The Insights Solution will continue to make more BSC data available to BSC parties and stakeholders at no additional cost, and will become the ‘go’ to platform for the GB energy industry. We conclude by supporting Ofgem’s focus on Code Governance Reform, FSO Reforms and RIIO-2 DSO Governance as the three key building blocks to transform energy governance for the benefit of consumers and delivering Net Zero.
